Converting the pdf|ps|dvi file to images is exactly what your favourite
viewer does. The problem with doc-view-mode is that it converts *all*
pages on the document to image *files* which are left on some place of
the hard disk.
If doc-view-mode supported the conversion of just the current page to be
displayed on the screen, without leaving behind thousands of image
files, it would be a decent document reader.
