Why must nets be assigned to a split/mixed plane layer?

I'm wondering what is the reasoning to have to assign nets to a split/mixed plane layer.  Why can't any net appear on a split/mixed plane layer?

 

We have made it a custom to flood component layers with copper (ground) using copper pours.  But copper pours have a lot of limitations.

 

Am I going to run into problems if I set a component layer to split/mixed plane, and then assign all nets to that layer?
