When you select "Open" the file is open from /tmp, so that's basically
the cache of your browser.
I don't find an external viewer uncomfortable, I even find it pretty
logical since when I open "report.pdf" on my home folder I see Evince,
so when I open "new-report.pdf" on www.reports.com I expect to see
Evince instead of another browser window.
I think that having PDF files open in the browser could make some
people think "so Epiphany is a browser or a all-seeing-app?". Of
course people that knew about browser plugins doesn't ask themselves
That's my humble opinion, I think it's more friendly and consistent.
See ya :)

For the same reason that it's better to view an HTML page in the
browser than to open a dedicated viewer for it: fewer clicks required.
(For most of the PDFs I read, I have no interest in keeping them, so
saving a copy anywhere other than my browser cache is a waste of time.)
