How to create local account on W11 Home

Many how-to videos on YouTube, including these:

How to setup Windows 11 Home with a Local Account

Create Windows 11 Home (New Install) Offline/Local account/Bypass Microsoft account

Seems like the trick is to disconnect the Ethernet plug, or if on WiFi, temporarily turn off the router. (The second video runs control netconnections from the command prompt.)

I wonder if there are any downsides to doing this?
