Why shouldn't I put a 32" monitor on a VESA arm rated for 24"?

Just the weight.  I've seen those arms with monitors too large/heavy and people put clamps and stuff on them to try to keep them in place.

I recently splurged on a 32-inch monitor, the PX329, and I am looking to mount it to my desk with an arm, but most of the arms listed on eBay are "up to 24 inches" and sometimes 27 inches. What is physically preventing me from getting an arm that was made for mounting 75x75mm and 100x100mm VESA monitors up to 24 inches and putting a monitor that is 33% larger than its advertised capacity? What can possibly go wrong, best case and worst case?

If I do not exceed the weight limit for the arm, then I can mount the monitor onto it without any major issues?
