Building a .tex file can be rather hard with packages and what-not,
plus quite a few of us use lhst2tex as a preprocessor. It's not
impossible, but its not trivial either, and I can't imagine that
anyone would use a .tex over a PDF.

If there is a much better format than PDF as generated by the standard
class files, it should be the authors creating it, not other people
post-processing the tex.
