Graphic bleeds can be supported without extensions simply by
oversizing the page edges and positioning absolutely-positioned block
containers across the cut edges.

For example, if you have a different bleed for each chapter, and each
chapter is in a page-sequence, then in the static content include an
appropriately-positioned block container and put your graphic in that
container such that it sits over top of the cut edge location.

I hope this helps.
