[tex-live] PDF/X-1a preflight and xetex/xdvipdfmx

I'm trying to generate PDF/X-1a2001 spec-compliant PDF files with xetex/xdvipdfmx (xdvipdfmx-0.7.8 from TeXLive 2012), and I'm running into one small bug that I can't find a good way to work around.  The xdvipdfmx backend seems to be omitting the /ID field in the PDF trailer.

For spec conformance, if I understand correctly, this should contain an array of two MD5 hashes of the body of the document, not including the trailer (presumably both containing the same value, given that it is a newly created file).  That said, I'm not sure how important the specific value is, so long as it is reasonably unique.

By any chance is this fixed upstream or in more recent builds?
