Consequences of refusing to mangle names

Has anyone tried this or does anyone have any opinions on what would 
happen if we refuse to provide mangled names in the responses to a 
find-first or find-next?

It seems that if we set the Short File Name Len to 0 in responses, that 
might work.

I wonder which apps will break in that case?

The reason for wanting to do this is performance related :-)
