Sure, but that's one case, and one particular pattern of usage.  I just 
don't know what it would do to, say, running it with VGA turned on, or 
an SD card, or any number of other things that might flake out if you 
undervolt it.  And even if that worked for you, I wouldn't be able to 
say, with confidence, it would work for all of our users, so we've taken 
the conservative stance that we provide the controls that ASUS itself 
provides (that is, S.H.E., for the models supporting it).
