In my experience, copy into document is best reserved
for when you do not want to send a huge stack of files
to those also working on the project. Import by
reference lowers the size of your FM file and allows
you to update an imported file once and have it update
across all uses. I've found copy into document
unneeded as of late, as most publishers will take a
production-ready PDF or a PS file instead of a FM file.
