Yes,it makes perfect sense. Here, another question arises.
Does absence of endomembrane system have to mean that it can't be multicellular??

Since prokaryotes have lot of unevenings in their plasma membrane(invaginations and outgrowths)and because of their small size, they have a high surface area which completely outnumbers the need for endomemebrane system as the absorption and transport of food molecules and others can take place much easily than in that of the eukaryotic plasma membrane. well, what do all of u have to say??
