Because it's cleaner that way. It's the same book, why have multiple records just because I have multiple files in the same format? After all, I don't create separate records for different formats either.

If you really need it in the same book entry, add a zip or rar file with all of your pdfs inside.
I'll probably go the Zip/RAR route -- thanks for the suggestion! Both this and the suggested duplication are kludges, though. IMHO the single-file-per-type assumption is a design flaw, or maybe I'm just too stubborn in persisting to be able to add all versions of a book to a single record.
