Nothing, unless your mooring field is prone to large breaking waves :P In fact the boat will probably be more stable when tied from the stern.

I have anchored from the stern before and found that the noise of even very small waves lapping against the hull and transom to be a bit.... surprising. I didn't try to sleep through it.
