I do this, and have done with with C*, since 0.86

1) Large mutations are a pain, which is why it's not really a recommended
use case for C*, I limit mine to 5MB
2) Repairs can get ugly and replication can get ugly due to the fact that
your hints will grow very quickly if you have an issue with network in
your DC

Netflix actually has support for chunking binary blobs in Astyanax.

I'd say you'll be fine if you plan to have 1MB mutations and only 1-2TB of
total load across your cluster.
