Be aware that ConTeXt needs to convert EPS (or SVG) to PDF before  
including - so providing EPS might elongate processing time.
And PDF sizes depend very much on the used tools, e.g. Acrobat  
Distiller PDFs are often smaller than GhostScript PDFs, even if  
there's no downgrading of pixel images involved.
