> you need to type `C-c C-t' once to get the pure text contents

Peripheral to this discussion, but please see bug #2058.

Visiting a new, empty file buffer `foo.pdf' should not raise errors or attempt
to deal with the (as yet empty) buffer as PDF data. Emacs should act similarly
to what it does if you visit a new, empty file `foo.html'. It's OK to assume a
PDF/Doc View mode for the buffer, but an empty buffer for a not-yet-existant
file should not raise an error.

And the intro message about `C-c C-t' (which is what made me think of posting
this) is far too long (~3 lines).
