Yes.  Other things that work really well in a setup like that are:

1. Using dovecot's mdbox storage format, which is much more efficient

2. Building dovecot with clucene and stemmer support for search

3. Using mbsync from the isync project (scales much better than
   offlineimap IMO, though I am about to try dropping it because doveadm
   sync is already part of dovecot)
