Rich Text Editor - images and potential performance impact?

The Rich Text Editor (RTE) in Pega allows pasting of binary content - images. I know that as soon as users paste an image, Pega creates a new Data-Content-Image object and stores its content in the database (i.e. base 64 encoded images).

Now, I was wondering if anyone has ever done this extensively (e.g. thousands of cases per day), and if there was an observable impact to performance? Even with smaller sized images, this could easily generate a few gigabytes worth of data in a month - all stored in Pega's db.
