I don't understand the details of this at all, Akira-san, but would it
explain why, after I had carefully rotated a PDF figure by 90% in Adobe
Acrobat, I found that that the rotation was lost when that same
(rotated) figure was imported using XeTeX's \XeTeXpdffile ?

I found had to explicitly rotate it for a second time at the point of
inclusion using \XeTeXpdfile's "rotated" keyword.
