This sounds like bad practise to me - it has the makings of a version control 
nightmare. How, for example, are you going to link the (possibly several) 
changed PDFs with their FrameMaker master document?

You do not say which version of FrameMaker you are using, but later versions 
have the ability to import PDF review comments:


The note 'Note: The source document should not be changed between generating 
PDF and importing comments' is no longer true with FrameMaker 12's enhanced 
Acrobat comment import feature:
