It's not a real matter of conversion, but of to what format.

First, Wine is designed to run Windows programs.  Regardless how good/bad MS Windows is, Wine should try to be just the same as the that.

Second, in the case of editing/creating something in a Wine'd editor, the ultimate question to be answered to whether the file being edited is a Linux file or a Windows file.  The obvious answer is that the outcome from a Wine'd editor should be a Windows file - why would someone use a Wine'd editor to edit a non-Windows file.
