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.
