Topic: Reference XObject information

I am interested in the capabilities of Reference XObjects for a future application, but I cannot find much information about them. There is the description in the PDF 1.4 reference, and that is about it.
It is also my understanding that neither Reader nor Acrobat supports display of Reference XObjects. I may be wrong about this and would welcome being corrected if so.
Are there any applications (plugins maybe?) that do support display of these objects?
What is Adobe's intent in providing this feature and then not including support for it in Acrobat? Is it intended to be supported in the future? Was there a particular application in mind when this feature was added?
Are there any "sample" documents anywhere that include Reference XObjects that one could use as a test or example of how the feature is meant to be implemented?
Thanks for any information (specific or general) on any of these questions.
