I don't actually recommend it because keeping up to date with the original repo's a PITA (and *not* automated in any way. https://help.github.com/articles/syncing-a-fork/ is annoyingly manual). You lose the ability to maintain your clone with github's web interface, but that's not much of a loss really.
Don't you also lose the ability to submit pull requests to the original repository? I don't see how noncommitters would contribute without having their own forks. I guess they could continue sending patches to Trac, but we are hoping to move away from that.
