    What will the trade-offs be?

It doesn't have to be a trade-off.  You can install the "native" TL in
/usr/local (the default), and it will not interfere with the "system"
TeX in /usr/bin etc.  You can switch between them as needed by changing
your PATH.

(FWIW, personally I never run the distro TeX.)
