Yes, this is possible.  I think you would need to create a custom 
page-master to give you better control of margins, headers and footers.  You 
could copy the simple-page-master and page-sequence-master for "back" 
(normally used for appendices) to another name, and modify the margins to 
fit your included image pages.  You could just use the top and bottom page 
margins, and set the top and bottom body margins to zero pt.


These page-master elements would be defined in a template named 
user.pagemasters as described here:


If you omit the region-before and region-after elements in the 
simple-page-masters, then there will be no headers and footers, only the 
body region.

To put the new page-master in play, you would need to add a role attribute 
to the appendix element, and customize the template named 
select.user.pagemaster as described here to respond to that role value:

Subject: [docbook-apps] Including external documents

Hello all,

I want to have an appendix which includes forms, contracts, etc.  These
documents were created in Microsoft Word. I want their appearance to be
exactly the same as in Microsoft Word. Specifically, I do not want to see:

Appendix A: Confidentiality Agreement

I hereby agree that I will  ...
[rest of agreement]

Instead, I want "Appendix A: Confidentiality Agreement" on a page
by itself with the usual headers and footers, followed by the agreement,
without any headers and footers.

I converted a form to PDF and put it in an imageobject, but I need to stop
DocBook from adding page numbers, inserting titles, etc.

Is this possible?
