The situation is a little more nuanced than that. There maybe something I'm
missing, but as far as I know the simplest answer is no, it's not possible to
create a PDF whose version is < 1.3. Why? Because FOP hasn't been designed to
be able to control the PDF version of the output. As such, there is too much
that is hard-coded to be able to produce PDF versions < 1.4 without a
significant effort in development.

However, producing pdfs > 1.4 is easy, simply because they're all backwards
compatible. As such, all PDF versions 1.4 are also valid as PDF 1.5, 1.6 and
1.7. So in order to create greater PDF versions all I had to do was change a
version header.

Hope that helps
