Yes.  It's a terrible idea.

Convert is ImageMagick, a pixel-oriented set of tools.
It converts your PS or PDF into a raster image (and the
default resolution is not particulartly high) so you lose
all the scalability of a vector format such as PS or PDF.
Once the damage is done, you can't undo it.
