I think this could be problematic under a couple of conditions.
If you play movies big and loud, the center could be taking most of the load. Sonically, it could limit the dynamic range of the entire system.
It could also be a problem if your system doesn't allow you to set the crossover separately for the center. If you have to use that 100Hz xover for everything, you've changed the sound of your system in a way you can't really compensate for. It might not matter, but if it does you're powerless.
Sometimes a phantom center is a better solution than an inadequate center.
