@tobykurien this is infuriating because i can't think of any good counter-arguments.

Here are a few counter points. Not all PDF are the same. If it does not embed all the fonts required to render it, it is not future proof and of archival quality.

PDFs are also excruciatingly hard for screen readers, thus lacks accessiblity. Copy pasting text often misses whitespaces, making life hell for normal folks.
