In my interpretation of WCAG 2 it is the author of the link responsibility
to indicate that it is a link to a PDF but not that persons responsibility
to write an HTML synopsis of the PDF.  I don't think most people would be
qualified to write an HTML synopsis of other people's PDF nor do I think
all PDF authors would want that and I do not believe it is required for
conformance.

Even if it weren't past cut off for comments, I don't think that anyone 
but you has a problem with the intent that it is the responsibility of 
the author of the link (i.e. you).

RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
