[pdftex] Illustrator 9.0 files with pdflatex and graphicx?

The more I think about it the less I understand why \includegraphics
looks at the MediaBox. That is almost certainly the wrong thing. It's as
if you were looking at %%DocumentSize in a ps file when including some
ps file in a graphic. Instead one looks at BBox.
Out of curiosity, why does \includegraphics look at MediaBox? And how do
I turn this behavior off and have it look for BBox instead? (I did try
to give an explicit bbox argument which I set to the correct values, but
that did not help).
Note, my goal is to use Illustrator pdf directly. That way I don't have
any conversions in the way (it strikes me as a natural thing to want; or
is there some reason not to want this?). I could save from Illustrator
to eps and then convert by hand, but that only invites synchronization
lossage between the Illustrator source and the included file.
