I see the following potential problems:
* root name servers stopping to accept AXFR (AFAIK, they never
promised to provide this service for ever),
* more state in the recursor, so new failure modes,
* may be (see D. Malone's paper mentioned by Tony Finch) more traffic
for the root name servers (the "refresh" of the root is very small).
