The only disadvantage might be a slight (very slight - probably measured in
microseconds) processing lag as the server has to go to the trouble of
including the file(s). That lag compounds the more visitors you have, but
your page views would probably have to be in the six or seven digits before
you'd start to notice any kind of a time delay over static pages.

But the advantages are so many, I couldn't even start to list them here. Go
for it, and have fun!
