comment Reason(s) for using a KDF for encryption keys
The output of a PBKDF2 implementation may be hexadecimal, but you can convert that output to whatever you want. Although, there are AES implementations that accept hexadecimal keys.

comment Double Encrypting with two different keys
It's important that the keys are actually independent, not just unique. To similar algorithms with related keys could go as far as canceling each other out, resulting in unencrypted plaintext.
