[xep-support] How do I use bleeds

One of our customers sent us background images for there documents which
are 8.75" x 11.25" including a 1/8" bleed so that the finished page size is
8.5" x 11". I have tried several scenarios and I cannot get the effect I
am looking for.

If I define my page size as 8.5" x 11" with a 1/8" bleed, I also have to
use a negative 1/8" horizontal and vertical position on the background to
get it centered on the page. This is close, but I actually want the
contents of the image to "spill" into the bleed area so that when the page
is trimmed there is no chance of white space showing up on the borders of
the page.

I also tried defining my page size as 8.75" x 11.25" and used a negative
1/8" bleed. The problem is that XEP trimmed the image in the bleed area so
we still run the risk of getting white edges on the document when it gets
trimmed. Does anyone know if there is a way to get XEP to leave the image
alone in the bleed area?
