[NTG-pdftex] \pdfoptionpdfminorversion

I'm wondering whether pdftex complains if I set the variable
\pdfoptionpdfminorversion to a very low value and use PDF features
which had been introduced in more recent versions of Acrobat.

Does pdftex complain in this case?

There is a problem with the manual, the file pdftex-a.pdf contains the
line "%PDF-1.5" which requires AR6 which is not available for Linux.

I doubt that this is necessary here because it doesn't make use of the
latest features.  So "%PDF-1.4" would be better.

Maybe even a lower value could be used.

Because many people work on the manual, it makes sense to set
\pdfoptionpdfminorversion explicitely in the file.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
