I did the test with remembrances of times when I did more print work. I'd
use CGMs for layout, then replace with EPS (w/o embedded positioning
bitmaps) for imaging negs. The CGMs were always smaller. I found two more
examples:

  complicated border -- CGM:  37k  EPS: 257k
  another logo --       CGM:  14k  EPS:  59k
