OK, I know my fonts are embedded because they are licensed fonts, not
printer resident, yet print OK. All images are embedded as
high-resolution PDFs (because XeTeX's \XeTeXpicfile primitive is buggy),
and the RGB/CMYK problem essentially out of my hands. So I think a few
test pages will have to suffice ...
