I doubt seriously that a non-PS printer will be able to do much with PDFs, since the PDF format can be considered a form of compressed PostScript. Agree that storing materials in PDF format -- if one properly embeds the fonts!!! -- is much preferable to sending the same file around in .ps format, which is much larger than optimized PDFs.
