Hi Maciej,

It is a specific requirement of PDF/X-3. Without this defined in the 
PDF exported it will fail certification tests.

The bug I referred to was to add support for explicitly adding support 
for defining these other 'boxes' within PDF export. Lack of these 
boxes is not necessarily a problem as they are assumed based on the 
media box setting.
