I use the same procedure: I run a FrameMaker shop and send out reviewing material in both PDF (authoritative) and docx. (The docx, however produced is not always completely accurate.) The advantage of using the docx for review is that reviewers can:
1. Make inline changes
2. Set tracking enabled so that I can determine easily whether to accept the changes or otherwise
I provide the material at a "known location" on our server or to outside reviewers by Dropbox link or by FTP download (some have Dropbox blocked).
About getting the docx from PDF in all capitals: That's weird. Are you using a FM|Acrobat font not installed for MS Office? If you export some other PDF (not from FM) to docx, do you get the same thing?

I'm with Lynne; why can't they learn to embed comments in Acrobat? In my experience, many Acrobat users don't even know about this feature. A little education might save a lot of aggravation.
