No, because the engine doesn't have to think about how to display your
data, it's just storing whatever you put in there.
I got involved in a project were data was being stored in fields on
another card, so not even visible. The amount of data was getting
quite large, about 40,000 lines in each field. When I changed it to
storing the data in custom properties, the speed of adding new data
points dropped from around 3 seconds to about 5 ticks!
