No, that's the problem. The only tool I have yet found that can handle this
well is Adobe Acrobat.

For example I haven't found a FOSS alternative that can handle bleed well
for impositioning.

What you are looking for I think is a tool that can crop to the bleed box.
But on the other hand, unless you are using tools that can use the
different PDF boxes you might as well just make your pages larger to
accomodate the bleed and then use guides to mark the margins.
