Not in my opinion. XeTeX is something unspecific producing an  
extended version of the well- or lesser known DeVice Independent file  
format, XDVI instead of old DVI. Then, at least on Mac OS X, you have  
the choice of two methods to convert XDVI to PDF: the default  
xdvipdfmx, that is dvipdfm related, or with the use of proprietary  
Apple machinery, Quartz. So the option ``dvipdfm´´ is clear while  
``xetex´´ hides this, at least on Mac OS X. Outside, xdvipdfmx is the  
sole option ...
