Can you please tell me why it's not recommended? What negative effects do you expect to see?

I plan to mount my speakers very close to the front wall (push SBIR up in frequency) and surround them by (1.) corner bass traps and (2.) 18cm (7") broadband absorbers placed in the middle of the front wall. Technically the speakers will not be flush-mounted (some air still between them and the absorbers), and above and below the speakers there will be bare wall only.
