You need to be more specific about the version you are using. With  
current versions of xetex, the xdvipdfmx driver, and hyperref, this  
should work fine. I just tested a sample document with TeX Live 2008  
beta, and the PDF properties are set correctly.

If you are running an older version of XeTeX on Mac OS X, and using  
the xdv2pdf output driver, then it is not possible to set the PDF  
properties using hyperref; the only way to do this would be to post- 
process the file with a separate tool.
