Maintain original File within WDS

I have been working on few projects where the client has PDF documents. This happens to be the case with my current client. 

I have to ingest those PDF documents to WDS and keep the original in some file store for displaying it when the document is returned by WDS. This brings maintainability issues. I think it would make sense to have an OPTION where upon ingestion, the original documents will be maintained within WDS, and that would be shown instead of the messy looking pdf returned by WDS

    Would this solve the problem of Discovery being able to return inline images in the original source document as part of an answer?
