Inkscape is advertised as an SVG editor, not an EPS editor.

It's certainly true that it would be a more useful tool if
it also had really good support for EPS, but at this time it
does not, nor do we have developers with interest in
Postscript/EPS. Our best option would be to create a plugin
to use scribus' EPS import/export, or to extract their code.
