Not all PDFs are indexed. And considering the performance issues that Bridge already has, I'm not sure if that would work well. Smart Collections are just live searches so that would be adding PDF search and indexing to Bridge.

Bridge definitely has a hard time handling the number of files I have, however, it does a pretty good job searching the keywords, filename, and various other fields so I don't see why it would be impossible.
