Thanks to Gene for steering toward Interactbuilder.

That said, I can already place the triangle and circle on separate layers
in Illustrator. And I can export each layer independently.

What I'm wondering, though, is how to export each layer such that the
rectangular background is wholly transparent. (Those familiar with trad.
publishing night recall acetate overlays with registration marks.)

When every layer is exported from Illustrator, the rectangular
"registration" must also remain intact, such that the resultant graphic
files can be programmatically combinedâand registeredâin a variety of B&W
gradients.
