I'm the wrong John :) but yes, you do care.  DTAQ's are revered for their
(relative) speed in program to program communications.  If you let these
things needlessly get into the MB range, you run the risk of harming that
good performance (so says the manual).  Cleanup also lessens your chances of
baddata sorts of errors that, admittedly are rare on the /400, but not
unheard of.
