If they truly mean "proofing", the editing is likely to be light and PDF is
a good solution.
Yes, I truly meant "proofing", the stage where you check that the final page breaks are okay and the footers haven't become garbled, and no cross-reference errors have crept in, and that sort of stuff -- because the PDF itself is what's going to the repro shop for printing or is itself being distributed as the deliverable. I often do that sort of proofing on material I have previously edited properly.
In my original note I failed to mention one other scenario: the editor makes a few last-minute changes _to the PDF itself_ instead of sending the edits back to the writer to incorporate them and regenerate the PDF. I often do those last-minute changes myself, because I mostly deal with clients who aren't professional writers but rather engineers and other professionals, and that's one of the things they want from me.
