As ciaranm pointed out, thats completely untrue. For one thing, PMS documents 
how ebuilds are written(somewhat).  PMS is used for things besides 
paludis/pkgcore/portage. For an example, see app-portage/gatt-svn. 
Gatt(written by mlangc) had to implement an atom parser. The only way this 
would be easily done was through PMS. So yes, PMS is useful besides the 3 
package managers.
