Our current bindings bind it as `PdfKit` 

Per https://developer.apple.com/documentation/pdfkit Apple refers to it as "PDFKit". And we have the arguably similar "MonoTouch.CoreNFC"

Hello Larry!

Yup that is intentional, it is the only exception to our naming guidelines[1]. PdfKit is not new perse, it already existed in macOS and the binding was a MonoMac contribution that followed the .Net naming guidelines.

So in order to avoid our customers having source compatibility pain (PDFKit vs PdfKit) and avoid breaking changes to Xamarin.Mac.dll we decided to keep PdfKit as is.

Hope this makes helps.
