No.  Ballast is cheap.  But the potential cost of missing relations due to
missing sequences is unbounded.

In the case where the sequence is added, this is at worst unknowable.
"Ever" is a very long time!  How can we predict what transforms some
post-singularity superseeker might apply to a future lookup target?

However in the case where the sequence is omitted the answer is easy: no one
will ever be able to get a hit on it.

Don't be shy.  There's still plenty of A-numbers left!
