Copy stage is a passive stage and Transformer is Active and it involves the process usage and copy does not . So its good to go with copy since it takes less time then transformer to propagate the columns over the link

Transformer is a heavier stage as apart from the orchestrate we do have the C++ operators for various derivations. Right from compilation to execution a Transformer will always take more time than a copy stage which is a simple straight forward passive(if we can call) stage
