It's been a decade since I looked at the PDF format, but is PDF significantly harder to create than Postscript? It seems to be that Draw maps fairly well onto PS - would ArtWorks too? If so, how much work would it be for AW to generate its own Postscript without using the printer driver? Then you could run this through ps2pdf - which has many, many options for things like ways to encode images, colour mopels etc, even if most people don't know they're there.
