But that isn't true! I can trivially take apart PDFs. I
cut'n'paste for fair-useish purposes routinely.

"Don't want" people to take files apart, I agree with you, a
well-crafted document becomes a mess. But if someone is
determined, etc. It makes for a nice disclaimer for you to not
support it post-mess, but it doesn't and can't actually stop
anyone. It's just (viewable as) a byte stream, after all.
