Index rebuilding results in increased performance?

We are running performance tests on our Alfresco 1.4.3 Enterprise server and needed to rebuild the indexes (for some unrelated problem). After this we noticed an incredible performance increase. Our test plan runs 76% faster now. The test plan simulates a user that visits a website based on Freemarker templates on top of Alfresco (based on quite a few Lucene searches).

Is it possible that the indexes get cluttered after a while? Is it worth running a full index rebuild every x months on a production environment to keep the performance up?
