Is it a risk to change field MTEXT of table T000?



I asked our SAP admins to change the field MTEXT of table T000 (client name/description), because there was no reasonable name in there. I my opinion this field is completely free text and one should be able to change this text at any time and in any system, regardless of productive or not. Our system administrators are afraid to change this text, because they fear that there could be inconsistencies and unpredictable errors because the name also occurs in other SAP-systems.

My question is: Is this fear realistic? Did anyone ever heard of a risk when changing the client name/description? (ONLY the text, NOT the key!!!)
