is "Data_D3\PC\MPQs\Cache\base\" necessary?

Technical Support
directory "Diablo 3\Data_D3\PC\MPQs\Cache\base\"
some of the "patch-base" files are quite bloated (4 gigs for patch-base-12480.mpq)
not to mention it gets very fragmented, last time i checked it had like 2000 fragments.
this must create really bad stuttering if you're running from hdd, and not ssd or ramdisk.
what's the purpose of duplicate files, isn't the data already available in original files and patch files?
is it possible to disable caching to file and let the game load data directly into ram?
