Bridge: PDF previews sub-par

Hi there

Is there any reason that Bridge cannot read the contents of a PDF file for its previews, as opposed to relying on the embedded previews in the PDF?

The PDF previews in the Preview pane and in fullscreen preview (space bar) look awful.

These are PDFs generated in InDesign, and I'm guessing what we're seeing is the preview which InDesign embeds.

Why can't Bridge just read the PDF? Even Finder does an admirable job of this. Even multi-page PDFs can be viewed razor sharp at icon size or full screen using Quick Look.

Why is Bridge so backward with this? Any thoughts?
