The only "problem" is the additional difficulty involved in
sanitizing and cleanup of the cooler. The immersion-type
cooler gets automatically sanitized when you dip it in the
boiling wort, but you would have to run sanitizing solution
through the other-type of cooler. Also, when you cleanup,
you will never know if you've cleaned all the wort
out of the tube, especially if you do non-whole-batch boils
(not the whole 5 gallons), since the wort will thicken as it
cools.
