No, it would not change the frequency of words, that is why also statistics 
like Zipf's law do not depend on the agglomeration of strokes into more or 
less characters.

The only case where it does matter is when a character is in reality more than 
one. An example of this would be the different plumes <'> which some believe 
are different characters, but we have discussed this quite a bit in the past.
