using DML replication to bypass row count mismatch in rep svr 15.6


I am planning to change my warm standby rep svr environment to "sql DML replication" mode to bypass the "row count mismatch" issue that occurs frequently when replicating tables with no primary key. I am using simple WS replication, no definitions, etc. Is there a down side to using "DML replication"? I already know the downside of transaction log replication, many 5185 errors. Right now I am ignoring 5185 errors, but Sybase told me some 5185's may represent a real issue, not just a duplicate row deleted. In order to not ignore 5185, but also not have my connections go down all the time, I have 2 choices WS with repdefs or DML rep. Also, does anyone know of another issue that can arise with 5185? I don't care if it deletes multiple duplicate records since these same records were removed from primary. Set up is ASE-Prim -> rep svr -> ASE-WS.
