AFAIK, Yes, but ultimately it depends on a number of things.
Size of repository, billions of items will generate a larger index of  
pointers to documents.
The larger the size of term vocabulary will create a larger inverted  
index, and if you need to sort then that may require more memory.

Performance over RMI is heavily dependent on the latency of each call  
and the frequency. Single calls are performant, if the application  
makes 1000's of calls to achieve a single user operation, then network  
latency will become dominant.
