Just out of curiosity, I just rechecked with the current draft. The overhead-to-content ratio seems to be holding between 1/3 and 2/5 - the present 609K .doc file becomes 373K as Unicode UTF-8 plain text (which preserves the non-ASCII characters in, e.g., "Dìqiú"):

609 - 373 = 236 / 609 ≈ 0.3875 * 100 = 38.75%

(For the technically curious, I'm using Word 2010 for Windows in "compatibility mode", which means it's saving as a Word 97-2003 .doc instead of the current .docx format. This is mainly for portability purposes in post-production.)

For comparison purposes, the longest Symphony movement, S4M7 The Revolution Will Be Televised, is 360K of plain text, and the longest single EPU piece to date, Apotheosis Now, clocks in at 527K.
