The reason it is bad is that parts of the code have already leaked out
from the org/ directory via custom-load and autoloads and that's going
to break things in the least convenient moment – for instance when you
try to hunt down bugs via "-Q".  There simply is no way to remove the
builtin Org from Emacs other than at build time and it's best not to
pretend otherwise.  Some day Emacs might actually treat its built-in
packages as actual packages so that you can de-activate or replace them,
but I wouldn't hold my breath.
