Multiple roles

Is there any danger to giving users extra roles? My understanding is that the user's permissions will default to the role with the most permissions. Is this correct? Are there any inherent problems with doing this?

What I'm trying to achieve:

I'd like to give some users extra roles as a simplified achievement system, using a modified Role Badge plugin to add badges to the user and profile. So most of these would be vanity roles, with no permissions attached, maybe one with access to post in a specific category. BUt mostly these would be to assign small icons to the user's profile. I've tested it and it works fine. I just don't know if this could somehow cause problems down the line.
