This being said, if the arches are mostly the same by all means go for instances.
Also you can add some randomization on which object get instanced, so with 3 or 4 arches with slight differences on shading or position/rotation/scale nobody might ever suspect you are repeating models.
Resources-wise I haven´t been most succesful with instancing and memory handling in Mantra in the past, but I have yet to test H12 instances. Supposedly it has gotten much better.
my two euro cents.

Of course another option would be to make the arch a DA and use the Delayed load technique. I've heard good things about this but never used it myself.
