Oh I completely agree. A standardized XML format (is it NEIM?) will be
far more useful in many ways than mere PDFs, I'm sure. I just think
it's a bit funny how the effort required from the information
*providers* tends to get glossed over. I don't really know much about
the adoption of this standard - I just know that starting from PDF,
generating useful XML is a nontrivial task.
