You might run into problems when you have to place labels very exactly. 
For low zoom that is not an issue, if a place name is a bit left or 
right than that's no problem, but when you get to high zoom levels and 
want to place lets say street names, than you have to know where to 
place it and that means you have to know how the raster tile behind it 
is rendered.
