Adding local currency

We would like to introduce mandatory fields for vendors and customers. One of the fields should be currencies. For the local currency the field stays empty since the local currency is handled in a different way. Microsoft advises against adding the local currency. See this link:
What is your experience? Have you added your local currency to your environment? What are possible side effects and what is the worst case senario?

    Adding local currency
    You should not add the local currency because that will mean that your LCY transactions will be handled as a currency transaction and that can potentially break the integrity of your system.
    What you could do is to say that the currency code is mandatory of if the country code is different from your home country if no foreign customers or vendors will be using your LCY.
    I would advice against that to but it is a possible work around.
