This doesn't help the OP, but there is a word processor for Mac OS
that uses PDF as its native format:

However, you can't import PDFs created by other software into it.

In fact, this technology started out with the express functionality that you cannot edit data once it is converted to pdf, thus protecting the original formatting of the file. IMHO, the best and so far the only fool proof way to edit a pdf is to get hold of the original doc. If we forget to do that then I guess we would do well to contact Adobe R&D, and hope they have figured a way out..... that is straight and square.
