Is this possible? I'm looking into archiving stuff into SVCD for now (no dvd burner) but was wondering about whether or not you can convert SVCD back to mpeg. I know you'd lose some quality in the process, but is it at all possible?

It is possible, but why would you want to? With the additional loss in quality of a second conversion you would be better to leave them SVCD.

In case I wanted to trade it with someone who doesn't have SVCD capability... I could see that happening. CDs are megacheap, though, and I think I'll just archive to mpeg and convert to svcd/dvd as needed.
