The 'hurt' (ok bad choice of words) is caused by creating assigns to directories that contain subfolders that have already been assigned the same "name".

For example if you chose the name "GAMES" as your assign and you add the directory "GAMES:A" to the assign, then you are creating a never-ending (virtual) folder structure. Because the assign contains a subdir that is in the initial assign. It's just asking for trouble.
