After a bit of testing, the increase seems to be linked to 3 files that were created using DITAFMx from a batch of xml files that were generated by script from an Excel workbook. Interestingly, these files have always been part of the document (and inserted in the same way), so I'm not sure why there's a sudden file size increase.
I'll be regenerating these files again soon, so I'll see if the increase continues. It's still odd.
