Hi Bart,
Yes, I've been saying that for years also.  I remember when John C. 
used to say that small coils were *more* efficient than large ones.
I attempted to explain to him that larger coils are actually more 
efficient because transformers become more efficient in
general when they get larger, and other losses may be reduced in
percentage terms also in the larger coils.  When I compared
the efficiency of some of my coils using an NST and then
a potential  transformer, the efficiency was better with the
potential transformer but the difference was rather small.
