It's sort of iffy... At some point, the energy you are putting into the
system won't get the secondary C up to a high enough voltage to break down.
If you go for a "single shot" system where you can charge the primary cap up
over many power line cycles, you could actually drive a fairly large system.
I have a 50W packaged HV power supply that I've used to charge a HV cap that
is discharged through a impulse transformer. So what if it takes a minute
to charge.. that's 3 kJ of charging energy, and it is a heck of a bang when
