      Exactly, and read-only is what the final distributed version of anything
      should be. If you don't set silly restrictions, that can be circumvented
      in any case, limited extraction of content is possible as graphics or
      ASCII, but no real editing.

      It is totally the wrong format for work in progress. That said I have
      been asked to provide scans bound together as PDF rather than the raw
      images and having done it I find myself much preferring that for reading
      or scanning (or printing) pages of stuff, but I keep the raw images for
      everything else.
