Subject: [CR]to squeeze or not to squeeze? that is the question...

I'm sure this has been asked and answered more than once here...but, is there some dire consequence to putting a 126mm sized rear axle into a 130mm spaced rear triangle, and light squeezing the stays together at the drop-outs when you tighten the quick-release?

I know, I know. I could get a 130mm sized axle and use spacers. I'm lazy..I'd prefer not to have to hassle that...so, any ideas, pro or con, on the above?

Thanks. And thanks to all who've answered my last couple of questions. I love this list
