I would say lots of people are used to think in the following way:
I want to open file `foo'.
Start program that handles file `foo'.
Open file `foo'
This works with files that you can edit (abiword files) and those you
can't (pdf). A distinction between the two is IMHO artificial.
Why not facilitate people that work like this and have one more entry
in the menu?
I would say there is even a better case for having evince in the menu
then for eog. eog opens files you can edit with programs like gimp,
while for evince there is no alternative `editor'.
