I tested this on a Windows 64bit machine and both files are embedded
(with MkIV and LMTX).

I have tested it again in Linux 64bit with brand new MkIV and LMTX
installations and only a file is embedded.

I don’t know what may be the difference here between Linux and Windows.

I’m afraid that outside the TeX world having a PDF file that reflects
what is displayed on screen is enough for most of the users.

Many thanks for your help,
