AFAIK, pdftex.cfg had been read at the very beginning before the
format file was loaded.

The latest (beta) releases of pdftex do not read pdftex.cfg any more.
All variables which had been defined in pdftex.cfg previously can be
set in the tex file now, either in the format file or later.  The
value of \pdfoutput is used when the first page is shipped out.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
