Here is comparison of different formats using triangulated adult dragon
Draco is order of magnitude smaller than compressed OBJ. After converting
Draco back to OBJ and importing it to Blender didn't see any issues with
the surface. So seems it's not like it dropped all the geometry.
Surely this is just a result of quick experiment, but it passed the
threshold of being interesting enough for the further investigation.
