Nothing.  IMHO.

You could complain that it can require more maintenance, just like
`cond', `let*', and other sequential constructs.

Some people prioritize writing code over reading code.  To me this
is misguided, and multi-variable `setq' is a plus, not a minus.

FWIW, for a very long time I avoided multi-variable setq.  Dunno
why - probably just maintenance laziness.

Later I learned to appreciate it.  I also go to the trouble of
(manually) aligning the values (for readability), something that
I also do now for `let' and `let*'.
