Interesting question.

It forces to think it over. I like that.

I like the idea of having this right at the start. It obliges to check 
the specs of the job before the start. Not a bad habit... Bleed or no 
bleed drives the design... Why so many people forget about it might be 
just for that reason: they see the option too late in the process! We 
always end up discussing about the workflow! At the same time, many if 
not all experienced DTP people will look to see that in the Print/Export 

I didn't see the feature yet. I know it's in CVS. I will have a look and 
get back to you with more if necessary.

Can we set the default bleed of 9 pts or 1/8th of an inch? I don't know 
what the metric world uses as default but I guess these figures should 
changes according to the unit you choose to work with.

Can't wait to see this for real! :)
