I'm don't think that this is unambiguously true.
It certainly depends on the value of a number of different parameters..
- transaction rate vs. CRL lifetime vs cert lifetime
- rate of invalidations
- size of CRL's vs size of certificates
- the ratio of distinct principals to distinct CRL issuers
*as seen by verifiers*.
