Indeed. Nothing stops you making a PDF that just contains a raster
graphic though, or rasterising a PDF like Scribus does when you import

Given Aaron's described usage, if the document doesn't have any raster
elements I'd suggest outputting or converting to PostScript, then
importing PostScript using File->Import instead. That'll import the
document as vectors, giving very crisp results and generally much
smaller files.
