It's also going to make it harder for you to identify bad links on the site. Assuming you've got redirects that are in place for reasons other than error management, how are you supposed to know that a given 301 you find in your logs is a bad link and not an intentional redirect? With real 404s for pages that aren't found you can check your logs or run a tool like Xenu through the site and easily find problems that can be fixed.
