IIRC, this is by paper size *name*. AFAIK, you can define, say, 2 (or
more) different "Letter" paper size names with identical "PageSize",
but different "ImageableArea", eg.:
*PageSize Letter/US Letter: "<</PageSize [612 792] /ImagingBBox null
*PageSize LetterFB/US Letter (FullBleed): "<</PageSize [612 792] /ImagingBBox null
*ImageableArea Letter/US Letter: "7 7 605 785"
*ImageableArea LetterFB/US Letter (FullBleed): "0 0 612 792"
