I completely disagree. This is a bloody good idea!

The entire quark document, it's links and fonts could be stored in the info
dictionary as a compressed stream. Of course this would make the document
enormous, but would make a really nice and simple way for people without
Quark to view your docs.

You would need a custom built Acrobat plug-in (or other PDF tool) and Quark
plug-in to get the info in and out of the PDF.
