Yes, if your printer wants it, or your company has a standard (say
ISO-9000 certification) which could be helped by it, maybe.

>2. Does pdfetex produce PDF/X compliant files?

I'd be pretty surprised at this.

pre-PDF/X, pdfTeX files would fail Enfocus Preflight settings for a
couple of our printers, so we would wash them through PostScript and re-Distill.
