Does anyone know of any disadvantages (or compelling reasons NOT to enable) Enhanced Lookups?

I don't see any references to such information in Google and Stack Exchange searches. My knee-jerk reaction is to enable them, but my responsible side wants to know of any caveats that have been (hopefully) documented.

I have not found a reason not to enable them. They are very useful for end users. They might make search time longer in very large databases but generally it seems the trade off of improved ability is a good one.
