In order to make that feasible, one thing that will have to happen is to
supply PDFs with suitable Open Prepress attachments and impositions and
maybe cut marks and whatnot.

Basically, a PDF suitable for bound printing is not one you'd use for
on-line viewing or for small-scale, non-bound printing on laser
printers at home or in the typical office.

Presumably these PDFs are already being created for the bound manuals in
the commercial releases, so there shouldn't be a problem making them
available, but it would need to be done to enable end-user printing of
bound manuals at local, low-volume print shops (e.g., FedEx / Kinko's
in the States).
