I think you nailed it. Just spent a few hours cleaning up a PDF to Word conversion myself (my first project). I'm just hoping eBook readers will soon be ubiquitous enough to force greater awareness by Adobe and PDF creators in general. It might manifest in the form of PDFs gradually including ebook friendly versions or new options that allow ebook hostile features to be easily removed. Of course at the same time, more publishers should start offering ebook specific formats as well.
