Lookup Relationship - versus - Master-Detail Relationship

I'm looking at changing a Lookup Relationship to a Master-Detail relationship between Accounts and Assets.  What is the downside to this for an instance that has been operating for a LONG time.  What speed bumps or pot holes should I look for before/during/after doing this?
