True... although Recosoft has recently released a product to convert PDF into 
an editable *InDesign* document, so I guess they must have thought there was a 
commercial need.


Same company does lots of other PDF->somethingelse converters, but sadly not 
for FrameMaker... unsurprisingly. However, you might be able to use one of 
their converters as a stepping stone, but I don't know whether it would give 
any advantage over a save to RTF from Acrobat.
