Given the PDF format's insanity it's actually quite hard to do it right and there are still documents that are only readable (or printable) with Adobe's software.
This happens in other direction, too - I've seen plenty of documents which were only viewable in poppler-based browser, but not in Adobe's reader. IMNSHO it just means that standard is too complex and baroque thus all implementation have bugs. It does not mean it's closed on inaccessible.
