disconnecting EGR = risks?

Along the lines of the original post, I was wondering what the potential risks are with disconnecting the EGR (on my 84 TD).

I believe that the vacuum unit that controls the EGR valve on my car has a leak, and am wondering if it is worth replacing, or just plugging the input vacuum lines. I will study the emmissions schematic more before doing so, but it looks like there is only one line to the EGR valve, and this proceedure would disable the EGR.

I have seen other posts that describe using a bb to plug that line, but I was still wondering if there are any risks.
