Olympus dust rejection

I knew there was a dust system there, but I only just learned how it works, and I didn't realise that it appears so muscular.
Does this mean I can relax about dust on my EPL1 when changing lenses if the environment is not obviously dusty?
Apparently there is a sticky strip that catches the dust. What happens when this strip gets fully loaded?

This sure is a LOT of dust in the video! The cleaning action is indeed spectacular. In normal use I expect to see only a few dust specks, so the strip will not easily be saturated. Panasonic has the same system as Olympus; I change lenses a lot, indoors and outdoors, and I don't see dust on my pictures, ever....
