I have seen posts from people that had a head tube failure. One in particular led to a month in the hospital and extensive facial reconstruction surgery. It's not just a figure of speech.

If you don't have the rear mixte stays, there is a real danger the seat tube will fail at the top tube. I think that's the main concern, not stiffness.
