I doubt if this is possible, because the Import operation, can extract 
raw text or whole pages in the form of images. It is not possible to 
extract formatted text - say in the form of a notebook. Maybe that will 
change in future versions of Mathematica, but I understand that the PDF 
format is rather opaque.
