[tex-live] dvipdfmx warnings -- sensible or not?

Since many folks with lots of PDF knowledge are on this list, I'm
asking this here. ;-)
I have a PDF file with a page that I include in a TeX document,
using dvipdfmx. This driver outputs warnings:
** WARNING ** "TrimBox" different from current CropBox found.
** WARNING ** TrimBox (PDF): [ 0 0.055 595 841.945 ]
** WARNING ** CropBox/MediaBox (PDF) : [ 0 0 595 842 ]
I can't see the problem that might be a reason for this warning.
According to my understanding, it is quite normal that a TrimBox is
smaller than a CropBox or a MediaBox -- that's explained in the PDF
In addition, dvipdfmx behaves itself reasonably; the trim box is
used as bbox of the constructed form object.
I will prepare a patch to dvipdfmx anyhow, that will add support
for TEX_HUSH configuration; now I'm asking for your opinion if one
should discard this warning as well. Or, you could please explain
the problem to me, why this situation might warrant a warning.
Thanks in advance for any answer,
