I'm developing a project in wich main clock accuracy isn't particurlaly important. I do need to measure time acurately, but I can use the RTC with an external 32.768 KHz crystal for that.

I was wondering about the possibility of using the internal HSI for this particular project, but I am a little concerned about what would be the disadvantages (specially since it seems everyone uses a crystal). Accurancy is an obvious one, but as I said, I'm not concerned about that.

What about other disadvantages, are there any? In my particular case I'm interested in power consumption as well. Thanks in advcance, respectfully,
