Yes. but things have a way of getting lost. The primary advantage to
embedding the data is you won't end up with the just .pdf and no way
to reproduce it.

As Neil points out, it is also only useful if the embedded data is
includes all the information needed to recreate the final .pdf --
which could make things trickier -- and greatly increase the size of
the .pdf.

Oh well.
