It all depends on what you are doing in the users home directories.

If lots of people are saving files and reading files from their home 
directory, or, if they are storing their mail folders in their homedir, 
then yes, it could possibly give you some better performance.

For my customers, I set the up with a  vertical application, and they 
never ever use their home directories, so in there case, the /home is 
only touched at login time, and then, only briefly.
