Manage client rights to delete directories rapidly

I am reading up on a new feature in OnTAP 9.11.1, the ability to "manage client rights to delete directories rapidly" (see link below).

 

This seems like a good feature to simply enable and leave enabled on CIFS Server volumes so Help Desk admins and/or end users can rapidly delete contents that need to be removed. Does anyone know if there is a performance hit, security risk, or some other reason not to enable this feature on a regular basis?

Well that gets right to the point @paul_stejskal ! Thank you. I should have thought of that myself. We'll make it an enable-as-needed feature!
