I've shot a series of twenty D700 Lo 1 images. These are the first images in my Gallery. (Since posting this response, Ive rearranged my images into albums. Many of my Lo 1 photos are in the "Structures" album. Each title begins with "Doe Run.") They are 14 bit raw captures, on a tripod, with the mirror up. I used a remote release on several. “Greens & Whites” is an example.

I don't think you should worry about using the "Lo" settings if you need to. It seems that more care is required to avoid highlight clipping with these settings, but there aren't really any other downsides.
Having said that, I need a reason to choose Lo-1 (such as needing a long shutter speed to blur movement intentionally), otherwise I don't go below ISO 200. I see little point in using Lo-1 (or any other value) indiscriminately.
We paid for all those ISO settings, why not use them

Hi Brian On my cameras when I reduce the ISO to a lower setting the shutter speed gets shorter! On a more serious note I agree that there is little use for Lo settings (brilliant sunshine - haven`t seen much of that recently, or a studio setting are the only reasons that leap out at me)
