I agree PDF is a final output, but disagree that 'the whole point of
PDF' is to make it hard for other people to edit. Its primary point is
to create an output which looks the same across OSes and various
configurations of computer (e.g. fonts). It is loved by graphic
artists for that reason: everyone will see the page exactly as
intended by the artist.
