while your concern is correct and deserves a bug report (please fill one 
: - ), i would say that if you're creating PDF forms you can almost 
safely ignore all the warnings from the preflight verifier.

they are thought for the professional printing workflow (where you do 
not want to notice a "frame error" when you get thousands of copies back 
from the printer.
