% You can wrap every bitmap image with XForm


% then you can put all XForms using \pdfliteral only

	/Fm\pdfxformname\pdflastxform \space Do

% since you don't use \pdfrefx* commands at top page level,
% you can make your own XObject dict, because pdfTeX will not
% generate one anyway

/XObject <<
	/Fm\pdfxformname\pdflastxform \space
	\the\pdflastxform\space 0 R


Is that what you need?
