How you use your catalogs is up to you. In the case of my main project
(Plone) even the catalog objects will usually be 2k or or each. If all
you can save is to reduce the string denoting the class from 30 bytes to
two, the gain isn't much.

If your application only uses a very small number of classes and those
massively (like lots of BTrees) you might see a real gain from this. But
I think this is an application specific decision and optimization to do.
