Why is Akonadi so heavy? Are there any plans for a lighter solution?

Hello KDE Community! I am a user of KDE’s Akonadi/Kontact apps for KMail, KOrganizer, KAddressBook and noticed in the system monitor that these services use ~1.0 GiB after all my accounts are set up. Why does Akonadi use so much RAM/resources? Are there any plans to create a lighter backend to keep those fantastic apps going, but without so much of a toll on system resources?
