Right. The problem is: none of the applications you mention can edit
*PDF* documents. And PDF is one of the core formats handled by these
applications we discuss in this threat.

If I'm currently using a _viewer_, _viewing_ a document, and now it
suddenly occurs to me (for whatever reason) that I may need to _edit_
it, I do not want to start a completely separate application, and 
load that document again. I'd rather prefer to click on "edit", and
see how my viewer quickly loads its editing tools so I can use them 
on the opened document....   [1]

Think "workflow"...


[1] Of course, being KDE, somehow it would be possible to determine
that I always want to laod the full featureset right from startup, 
because I may not be a "view only" user
