You might want to take a look at chapter 14.11.2 "Page Boundaries" in
the PDF specification, which discusses the layout box model. Perhaps
it would suffice if you simply resize the MediaBox, and/or define
CropBox. PDFBox provides you a nice API for that (eg.
org.apache.pdfbox.pdmodel.PDPage#setMediaBox(PDRectangle)).
