An even better question would be, WHY would someone make a PDF
of a badly designed publication/document and expect it to look
good in PDF? PDF makes an EXACT (just cross-platform and a LOT
smaller in filesize) version, it can not and does not correct
author errors.

If you want word wrap, even Notepad has a wordwrap toggle. Etc.

Of course, it is no easy matter to be polite; in so far, I mean,
as it requires us to show great respect for everybody, whereas
most people deserve none at all; and again in so far as it
demands that we should feign the most lively interest in people,
when we must be very glad that we have nothing to do with them.

It is hard to be polite, but you may as well have said nothing since you don't know the answer. I too have a pdf file I would like to word wrap to read on my smartphone. It is a paper that a University has only made available in that format. I do not know why, but while why is an interesting question, it is not a better question and it's answer will not help me word wrap the file I have.

* adobe reader lets you reflow which is more or less the same as word wrapping
