Probably to help us generalize, and to avoid being bitten by said
problems - which can be real, very real and very hard to route around? 

A PDF _can_ be the source - If it uses OpenOffice's new Hybrid PDF
format [1], which embeds an ODF. Of course, that is _very_ seldom the
case. (and writing practically anything with OOo is... Bah, I just
hate the Office mindset. It is an inefficient as it gets!)
