It's probably a good preventative measure, in the same way that not
doing everything as root is. The system should still work properly.
The only problem is with upgrading programs; if you're running one of
the Debian distributions that changes rapidly (frozen or unstable) you
might want /usr read-write so you can update the system. Overall,
though, it's probably not a bad idea...
