For highly utilized designs, too much pipelining can lead to suboptimal results. For example, unnecessary pipeline stages increase the number of flip-flops and routing resources, which might limit the place and route algorithms if the utilization is high.

Note: If there are many paths with 0/1 levels of logic, check to make sure this is intentional.
