​Oh, interesting point.  Maybe we should define PDF as an abstract semantics that we can convert into a wide range of equivalent document layout languages?  If the attacker can't tell exactly what xsl-fo or dsssl the tool will output, or what software you're using to render the result, it will magically make it more difficult to attack!​
