Yes, I think so, because one does not need to make a large String first (or a 
File if that is used as intermediate) for the PDB serialization...

The Jmol viewer still copies things into private data classes, so the 
rendering speed is identical.

Because of this copying, I'm now realizing that it might not get updated when 
the original data object is changed... so, it might not be that useful
