Why do the Optimize PDF Document or Optimize PDF Separations tasks embed external references?


None of the PDF Tasks (i.e., Optimize PDF Separations, Optimize PDF Document, Resize PDF, Version PDF, etc) are able to handle external references. External references is a Normalized PDF concept, only Normalized PDF tasks can handle them. To guarantee consistency, these tasks will always automatically embed external references before processing.
