You're probably right. I don't know anything more than is in the  
documentation. And in the area of pdfmark support (or its  
limitations), I don't even know that much, because I haven't looked  
into it.

There are some papers around that discuss dvipdfmx, and might have  
information about any extensions to the original dvipdfm \special  
support, but I don't have details on hand.
