Does iBooks upgrade foreshadow that Apple will support PDF sales?

I just upgraded to iBooks 1.1 -- and it beautifully supports PDFs.

I'm curious if this is development means that Apple will one day allows publishers to sell PDF-formatted publications?

Personally, I'd love to see this happen. I've got a few PDFs created in InDesign with call-outs, etc. Transferring them to ePub is no trivial task.

Any thoughts?

Perhaps they are looking to get into the magazine/newspaper subscriptions market?

I suspect that's more likely, yes.
