In practice it is not so bad
After making some changes in the CAS algorithm and improving the prototype (basically, I write its core from scratch) I could study its behavior with larger collections. The results were positive because the growth of the shape pool is far below the simulated worst case. Indeed, after the third iteration the number of segments to add to shape pool decreases and within seventh iteration is very low. The chart bellow illustrates exactly this.
