What features would you lose? PDF is basically PostScript without all 
the programmability. 

Do you gain them back when you convert the other way, ps2pdf?
I just converted a file from pdf to ps and then from ps to pdf again.
The second pdf file was only slightly smaller than the original. 
PS and PDF are a lot closer related than JPEG and Gif.
