In the absence of true bleeds here is what I do in 1.2.x or 1.3.2cvs. 
1.3.2 makes it a bit easier, but I even recently did this for a cover 
layout with 1.2.4cvs when we were breaking 1.3.2cvs a bit.

I create what ever pages and layout I need, then copy the pages over 
to a page into a new doc which has pages 1 inch larger dimensions all 

Then those items which need to bleed, get resized to meet the bleed 
requirements - typically .25" or 3 cm.

It sounds like more work than it is and I have had to do the same with 
PDF's created with Indesign in the past when a printer changed 
requirements on my client at the last minute.

Hope that helps,
