Agree about the dark threads showing through a lighter fabric.
Likewise, the frayed fibres sometimes can be a worse problem than the stitching thread.

As for problems for the LA'er, sometimes threads/frays inside the sandwich will get pulled back to the outside with the needle going in and out. Then can be difficult to "clean up" if it has the LA stitching on it. Or with the bulk created where multiple seams meet up, can sometimes be hard enough for the LA'er to stitch smoothly and evenly. Thus, removing the excess can help.
