I'd say yes if they are likely to be printed on paper, no if it is only
likely to be read from a screen. 

I disagree. Once a document no longer needs editing (and this is a frequent need in daily life - 
think purchase receipt, invoice, insurance schedule and so on) it needs to be provided in an 
electronic format that cannot be easily altered. PDF plays this role, ODF doesn't.
