Being a TeX-nician for years, I pretty well know how to
create pleasant pdfs. Yet, both pdf and html have different
usages. For example, how could you make a wiki-like
site - where everybody can edit, correct and extend the
context - using pdf-only solution? It won't work! Pdf
is an output format, not well suited for editing.

The current trends are quite opposite to what you suggest.
We like to be able to produce from *one* source multiple
documents: for print, for a beamer, for a screen; using
ps and pdf and html and possibly some other formats, too.
