Did you also point Andreas Matthias to the more technical answer made  
on the XeTeX mailing list <http://tug.org/pipermail/xetex/2007-April/ 
006149.html>, which I forwarded yesterday?

If I interpret correctly that part of the answer:

then this means that XeTeX's way of handling PDF files is prone to  
change in the future, with the planned introduction of one control  
sequence \XeTeXpdffilepages on the TODO list. I imagine this control  
sequence would allow the inclusion of selected pages of a PDF file.
