Automatic PDF creation and Version control

When you request Alfresco to create a PDF from a word file, it considers this pdf as a new file, without version history (unless of course the versioning aspect is turned on in the space where the pdf is stored). There's nothing wrong with that.

Having said that, it would be nice, if the newly created PDF would somehow show the version number of the source document so the party to which the pdf is sent, can refer to it with the version number.

Similarly, if you decide to provide intermediate versions of a document in pdf, how can you make sure that these pdfs persent themselves as different versions from one and the same core document?
