    I can't give you the exact markup because it was done for a customer,
    but the basic technique I used is to use absolutely-positioned
    block-containers with borders on their narrow edges. Using this
    technique, you can create crop marks.

    Specify no page margins and use the margins on the region-body and
    extents on edge regions to position the real page content appropriately
    on the physical page.

    For registration marks, I created a reasonable registration target as an
    EPS and then just use more block-containers to place them.

    Keep in mind that XEP positions block-containers relative to the edge of
    the physical page.
