I should add that the question arose as dvipdfmx.def and xetex.def
currently use different approaches to colour. The reasons are I think
historical: xdv2pdf didn't support the dvipdfmx approach, but xdvipdfmx
does. For maintenance *today* it would be clearer if we had a simple way
of knowing which parts have to be different between the dvipdfmx and
xetex drivers.
