David,
PDF does support reflow. See http://help.adobe.com/en_US/acrobat/X/pro/using/WS58a04a822e3e50102bd615109794195ff-7d19.w.html

Hi Craig,

An ebook (in .pub or .mobi format, for example) is designed for an ebook reader such as a Kindle or a Nook. When you change the size of the font in the reader, the text of the book reflows.

PDFs are electronic representations of printed pages (which is why you can install "Adobe PDF" as a printer on your Windows PC), and when you resize the page in a PDF the text doesn't reflow.

David
