There currently is some talk on the developers list about how to improve
performance for those monitoring many thousands of interfaces.

I'd say you probably won't have to worry about your ten.

The amount of data in one RRA (your AVG) won't impact performance at
all, only the amount of diskspace depends.  The amount of RRAs and DSes
will impact performance but unless you are going to monitor much, much
more than you do now you won't notice the process.
