Some disk space, so almost nothing. And the potential that people grab
it by mistake - it adds a bit to confusion.

Looking at it from the other side, what's the use-case for keeping it?
If you want to "diff" against it or something like that, you can just
do that against your local clone (that you already had - if you
didn't, you shouldn't be using it at all)...
