The only major adverse effect of REUSEDLT(*YES) is if you have a program
that reads the file sequentially (possibly for performance), and assumes
that record n+1 was written chronologically after record n.

A more minor point is if you have applications that add, and then delete,
records.  This is not a common application design.
