Please notice that my tutorial is about geospatial PDF, the name GeoPDF is a registered trade mark of TerraGO. GDAL can write also that variant of geospatial PDF if option -co GEO_ENCODING=OGC_BP is used, but even then it is not GeoPDF(tm).

About ORG feature styling, it is a mechanism for doing per feature styling which would be awfully complicated with SLD so I think that is has also the right for living.
