No, it really wouldn't.

Thumbnails are a local resource for a very good reason - performance mainly, but also the potentially different hardware characteristics of each client which makes sharing a single cached thumbnail between multiple disparate clients impossible at worst, undesirable at best.

There are scripts and addons that can help you keep on top of Texture Cache bloat. Scheduling the script in my sig to run monthly and "prune" the cache of each client should keep things in check. Run it more frequently if you find it's still a problem.

Don't even waste your time trying.
