More like just because it's not supported by the current set of
browsers, but the answer is yes. Take this quote from Paul Stamatiou
"From what I've gathered at [Yahoo!], the use of negative margin is
somewhat frowned upon as it is forcing elements of the website to do
things they're not supposed to do naturally. So when the design of a
certain element on the project called for an effect that could only be
pulled off with negative margin, we changed the design."
In Yahoo!'s case, the benefits of relying on CSS and other standards
recommendations far outweight the benefits of committing to some
particular design element. That may or may not be true for you too.
