That's easy. Adobe is a authoring tool company. They want people
lots of people to be able to view their files so that a smaller, but
still large, number of people will pay them to use their authoring
tools. It's the same basic strategy as PDF.
Arguing with an engineer is like wrestling with a pig in mud.
After a while, you realize the pig is enjoying it.
