That would be much, much more effective documentation because the CSS would be there for authors as well. Integrating the advanced features would become more of a cut-and-paste operation. I am assuming it would be quite time consuming for web authors to map what they see in a PDF to the equivalent CSS rules.

Whether it's pdf or html is not really an issue here. The point is that this kind of documentation should not be part of the WOFF metadata.
