Entire Lightroom Library and Catalogue on a NAS = Bad idea?

I have a 15" 256GB Retina Macbook Pro and my LR library is on a USB 3 external drive and my catalogue is on my internal SSD.

I'm thinking about moving both the library and catalogue to a NAS and I'm wondering if this is a bad idea.

I'm asking because I would be browsing and editing my photos that would be on the NAS via 802.11N wifi connection.

Is this going to be brutally slow? It just be nice not having to dangle an external drive off my Macbook all the time.

Thanks in advance!
