That really depends on why the name node is in safemode.
If the reason is system startup in which only a few datanodes have reported
in, then the only problem is that some files may not be fully present.
If the reason is some sort of system corruption, it could be a really big
mistake to force the system out of safe mode, mostly likely because you are
forcing the system out in order to cause more damage.

What is the implication of manually forcing name node to leave safemode?
What properties do HDFS lose by doing that?
One gain to that is that the file system will be available for writes
