My (admittedly quite trivial) point was that people should not assume a PDF 
file is in vector graphic format when---thanks to the enormous popularity of 
the file format---some application software will offer to save bitmaps as pdf, 
thus (perhaps) misleading the user into thinking they have produced a vector 
graphics when that's not the case.
