This is expected behaviour. PDF file size is not a top priority
for us; until it is contained in reasonable limits, we don't squeeze
it to the maximum. In particular, our subsetting algorithm for
TrueType is not the best possible (though arguably the safest :-)).
I believe that the font is the main cause for the file size difference.
There's not much you can do about this within XEP. The most natural
option seems to adopt some external optimization tool, and repackage
