Message:
maybe one should not be too picky and still keep copying 
probably illegal (?) things like /Subtype 2 0 R. You can try 
this with the attached file xx.tex, where the resulting PDF 
needs manual editing to replace e. g., /Font or /Type1 by a 
reference "1 0 R" or "2 0 R". Neither xpdf nor acrobat have 
any problems displaying such a PDF file! But when the 
/Subtype info from an embedded PDF is removed during 
embedding, a later application might well run into problems.
So maybe better keep it "garbage in -- garbage out".
