*WARNING* I know zilch about PDF specs

have you tried editing the first line in the pdf file to read
%PDF-X/1a:2001 (or whatever a PDF-X/1a:2001 file has as its first line)

I just edited a PDF file that had %PDF-1.4 as its first line. Acrobat
Reader flashed up a message (I haven't done speed reading) but it said
something about "Rebuilding"

Ocular just opened it

Maybe that's all they check?
