By the time damage is done it might be too late to correct it. As has been mentioned, there are potential detrimental effects that can take many forms. It's hard to predict which symptom might arise.

Ecomodders tent to want to be in the highest gear and at the lowest RPM's, and that can lead toward lugging the engine. But you can feel the effects of the engine lugging when it is happening, so it is avoidable.

An ounce of prevention is worth as pound of cure... so IMHO it is best to avoid doing it.
