That's very nice but:

1) Either editing the manual is permitted
2) Or editing the manual is not permitted

If 1), then distribute the source files, don't make people jump through PDF
editing hoops. To do the latter is ridiculous, who are you fooling? To do
the latter is a waste of company resources, and deliberately so.

If 2) then distribute the PDF with instructions that none may edit it.

Cheers,

The reasoning behind NOT distributing the actual source is that the
parent
company can then say that the manual being produced IS the official
release,
anything used ONLY internally and changed by staff via PDF---->RTF
conversion is allowable but only at the other division's risk.
Plus, it's
also up to them (the other division) to maintain an up-to-date
manual that
they've customized from the PDFs to RTF via their conversion.
Sometimes,
it's just not very easy to argue that only one version of a manual
should
exist if you've got a manager over you in another department in a
physically
separated location saying they'd like to customize the manual for
their own
use.
