Topic: Percentage of Xref table in document size (Via Email)

We are currently updating a forms collection which had already gone
quite a few updates. When doing the Save as... we use the PDF
Consultant in Acrobat 5.05, and have a look at the percentage.
We now noticed that we have some documents where the size of the Xref
table is more than 100 kByte for a total document size in the 300
kByte range, giving a 30% share of the Xref table. These values look
a little bit on the high side to us. OK, the form has quite a few
fields, but this is still a high number.
Is there a rule of thumb to determine if the Xref table is
unnecessarily bloated and other means are needed (such as
reassembling the form).
Any idea is highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
