Are there any side effects that one has to watch out for with this 

As one (probably unrealistic) concern, suppose one did this with a 
sizable number of variables X1 . . . X100, or did it with a moderately 
complex Plot (can this be done with a Plot, inside a text cell?).  

Might doing this seriously slow down (or otherwise mess up) other 
calculations involving or using the X_n values?
