We had some issues when we published our manual. We used LSI for those 
which were purchased through Amazon, and Louis Desjardins's Mardigrafe 
for others. IIRC, problems we had initially ended up being that all of 
the fonts were not embedded, and once that was fixed, then it was Ok for 
LSI too.

As I look back at the PDFs, they both indicate that they are PDF 1.4, 
with the PDF creator being pdftk (we made chapters in Scribus, then 
assembled the book with pdftk).

So there is information that LSI has that they don't wish to share. If 
we want to give them some slack, we might suggest that they restrict 
themselves to known "safe" PDF creators, but there are more nefarious 
interpretations also.
