Probably.  But here-documents are _very_ expensive for old shells (the
number of links created grows with complexity of surrounding script
even), and mildly expensive even for some new shells (creation and
removal of a temp file).  Redirections of file descriptors are very
cheap, for any shell I know (a syscall or two).
