The intention here is not to surreptitiously notify me of who has or is reading the document. I would put a notice at the top of Page 1 advising readers that opening the PDF does 'phone home.' I distribute the document to a few select others, and they are free to pass it on, but I wish to know who all is reading it.

Some people have outgoing firewalls to stop applications 'phoning home', which is often seen as bad manners.
Good point.
