Could you elaborate on the side-effects you are referred to?
The main thing it does is destroys the tabbing order. By default, tabbing takes you through the fields of a dialog in a left-to-right/top-to-bottom order, but in more complex dialogs developers often override this to provide a more logical flow. As soon as you turn on Full Keyboard Access, that goes out the window. And for what? In many cases tabbing highlights a control, but you still have to click on it to make it do anything.

It should be useful, but it's poorly implemented.
