Not really, it will just increase your bandwidth consumption. Some Altis Life servers have like 50 MB PBOs due to custom HD skins for vehicles.

That'd be terrible to deal with.  Upload/Download rate for Arma is terrible.  I'd be afraid to ever have to fix any bugs due to the huge time it'd take for players to get the new files.
