The only thing I need PDF X/1-a for is cover art and Scribus 
does covers well (see sig block.)  So the pdfx LaTeX macro, 
plus its required files, is workable but more effort than I 
want to deal with on a day to day basis. 

I did find one bug in pdfx relating to time zones West of 
Greenwich but I am pretty sure that one has been fixed.
