[XeTeX] Placing .pdfs w/ crop and trim boxes

I've gotten pretty far along on re-creating a journal currently done  
in Quark XPress (~123 crashes cumulative YTD for this and other  
projects) in XeLaTeX, and am now at the point of placing graphics.

Cropping in Adobe Acrobat (having their crop box set) isn't respected  
when they're placed --- is this a known issue? (I couldn't find  
anything on it) and what causes it?

I'm fixing all of the graphics as I create them anyway, so no great  
matter, but it was a bit disconcerting (esp. since one was placed on  
a legal page and required a huge amount of movement to get it to show  
up on the page).

Also, will it be possible to set the crop, trim and media box in  
XeTeX? Currently I have to manually set the crop box in Acrobat  
before sending things through Prinergy.
