Pitfalls of not planning for the SD-module from the start

We are just starting an SAP R/3 project for FI/CO/MM/PP with the addition of SD in the future. What pitfalls around setting up your company codes are there in not blueprinting your SD process? For exampe, are you required to set up customers by company code? If so, it looks like the maintenance would be difficult.
It is important to look at end-state and where you want to go vis-a-vis sales process and purchasing process. You have to ask how your enterprise will be eventually structured. Some of the immediate pitfalls I can think of are:
1. Constrains in doing some of the processes, like inter-company shipments.
2. You will have to re-do the enterprise structure.
3. You'll have to do more data maintenance.
