If it is the same font, you can add the same COSStream object, i.e. you 
don't have to create a new one.

About the size - that's why subsets are used. But for that, you would 
have to analyse each content stream to see which glyphs are used.

It's probably cheaper to buy a product like callas pdfaPilot.
