Yes it would, at least for me.  /usr is for program files, and is somewhat limited in size.  If that's all it was used for, that would be fine.. but when the archives are in the same place, and start growing, that is a major problem.  Right now I probably have close to a half gig of archives, and I don't have that major of lists.

/home or /var is a better place for that stuff.
