You can convert from one format to another and also back to the other format.

 

The key thing is to select the preset from the presets panel and then add them to the document. It is a pity that there is no auto convert feature for the strokes. You can then remove the bounding box etc from the path and then add it back into the presets panel. On return to the presets panel you are offered the options for the new stroke - just select the correct one for the task that you want to do
