You mean this?

I don't know what is still missing in FLOSS PDF readers for fulfilling 
the ISO standard (not sure if 3D funcionalities, for instance, fit in 
there :-?).

Me neither (just installed recently in my VM for testing purposes). In my 
linux boxes I use Evince.

But when we (at the office) have to deal with an oficial/legal PDF (which 
adds form validation and interactive fields) they pursuade me to do it 
under Acrobat in a Windows machine (to avoid any problem with the data, I 
guess) :-(
