Duplicate file references consequences ?

I've noticed that my solution is littered by duplicate file references : I mean that in the Manage External Data Sources, there's several entries that points to the same files.


For instance :


Name Details


Vendors Filepath:vendors

Vendors 2 Filepath:vendors

Vendors 3 Filepath:vendors


Those duplicate File references are used in script steps, relationships, fields etc.


I'm wondering if there's any bad consequences, besides code readability, to those duplicated file ref : Speed loss, memory footprint, more network utilisation ?
