I think that's a reasonable opinion. How about this: if TCOBrowser sees 
that crap it raises a warning telling that with this *ware PDF files 
can't be displayed in TCOBrowser, but when this plague-in is removed 
and that from SchubertIT installed it would work, + a footnote where in 
Adobe Reader 7 to switch off the re-installation. Then TCOBrowser uses 
the forward mechanism to the default Internet browser. On next start-up 
TCOBrowser checks again and might warn again, if the plague-in is still 
there. Otherwise it uses SchubertIT's PDF plug-in or, if it's not 
installed, it forwards the PDF file to the default Internet browser.

To me it's a very valuable feature when TCOBrowser or any other 
application can achieve things inside its own window(s). (Particularly 
when one's using a few virtual desktops and the Internet browser is 
left somewhere.)
