But embedded fonts for me is something that I will always immediately get rid of.
Why would you remove the fonts? In most cases, they make the eBooks look better. Also, if you don't like the amount of space they take up, you could use Calibre to subset the fonts and any not used will be deleted and the rest will be reduced in size. I've gone from like 3.5MB down to 800K by subsetting.
