The only problem which may appear if you use a higher power battery like the li-ion is that the recycle time is faster and the head may heat too much, but otherwise the battery has nothing to do with the head.

You'd have hope the head has nothing to do with the battery, but apparently not in the first generation heads.  It appears they didn't consider the idea of driving it off a lithium-ion battery.  I did get emailed a few pictures of the circuitry inside the lithium ion battery packs, to show it's not just a simple battery terminal connection.  I've still not had my heads changed.  I think I'll just stick with the lead-acid ones and have it plugged in while it's being used.  I usually leave the battery pack on the floor when shooting, so the reduce weight isn't a huge benefit to me.
