I agreed with Lukasz's opinion.
IIRC, default EFL linker script does not map the debug section even 
though '-g' option is used.
So there is no big difference between stripped and non-stripped binaries.

BTW, how about use '-static' option in case of some critical preloaded app?
The binary size might be little bit bigger then stripped one,
but static linked binaries are tend to slightly faster startup times 
then dynamic linked one.
