For our convenience: a request has been filed to add a checkbox to  
the eps export panel to omit the preview information. That should  
solve the issue (I remember this checkbox was in the system-level eps  
export dialogue, it does make sense).

I'm sure they will look into this thoroughly. Still a bitmap is  
larger than quite a few vector images. And the preview must be  
understood by Office, so don't expect anything too fancy… the option  
to turn it off should keep most of us on the list happy.
