Minimize Map Package Size

What kinds of things have an influence on the size of a map package (*.mpk) that is created? I have noticed that when replacing a layer whose data source is an *.sdc file with the same data in a *.shp file it causes the size of the package to go up dramatically, so I'm wondering if there is any documentation on what contributes to MPK size? In all cases I do not check the "reference all data" box when creating my MPK, so that at least remains constant.
