The only downside I'm aware of is that svnadmin load performs a bit less
performant (most notably with large repositories on slower storage
systems (i.e. HDD or NAS)). This however only applies to the performance
of running the load command. The repository's performance is not
impacted to my knowledge.

P.S. your mail signature is not quite suitable for posting on mailing
lists. ;-)
