Any issues using Campagnolo 11-speed crank with 10-speed setup?

My search revealed opinions on both sides, but nobody with an actual in-use opinion.

I have a Campy Record 10-speed drivetrain using a FSA compact pro crank. This crank has served me well for 6 years over a few bikes with both a Shimano and Campy setup, but its developing a tiny wobble in the right side that I suspect is just worn metal no longer mating tight with the ISIS BB. I have a Zipp BB that is fantastic. Given I can only get the tiny wobble feel in the right side in yank tests, I'm pretty sure its not a BB issue and right now its pretty benign, so it likely will go on a project bike for light use in the future.

So, I think I'll finally upgrade to ultratorque, likely a Chorus from PBK for money purposes. Any issues running the Chorus 11-speed crank with my existing 10-speed setup. I figure I might upgrade to 11 speed in a few years anyway. I suppose I could troll for a used 10-speed or get a 10-speed Centaur crank, but its a good deal for new Chorus with coupon at PBK along with the 4000s deal.
