Well, as we say, no guts-no glory
It really doesn't hurt anything.
The problem is that all stock Acer tabs suffer from a very poor IO, mostly when it comes to DB writes and other IO functions. Running a simple Quadrant benchmark at standard setting will affirm this. Just look at the IO results. The poorest of any device out there, and poorest by a lot!
Not sure whether this is because of the "noop" scheduler Acer insists on using. Generally, this is an ok scheduler, however BFQ handles things better in my opinion.
Tweaks to improve IO performance have been around for awhile. Generally, as in the Iconia Tab series, it involves some changes in ramdisk, and not the kernel itself. Unless Devs add the BFQ scheduler, which requires a kernel rebuild.
I have a modified kernel (701), unfortunately, never got a chance to test it, before the CWM recovery borked. If I compare to the 501, it should increase IO performance by 400%, more inline with other devices.
Why Acer in 2 years, hasn't improved IO performance when they easily can, well, it escapes logic.
