Use system generated Views?

Now that we can see and edit the system generated views, should I delete my handmade Views and use the system generated? Will this make my App lighter and faster?

@praveen I had some of the same thoughts

You guys are observing the platform in various states. Now that we have system-generated Ref views, the intent is definitely to make it much easier for you to just modify those views rather than have to create your own.

Removing views will make the app only marginally lighter. It might remove some editor clutter though.

The biggest bloat in app definition size comes from column definitions and expressions. The biggest impact on performance comes from inefficient expressions being used in things like format rules and of course from having large data sets.
