From a pragmatic point of view that would also mean that you wouldn't be able to log in from remote if TOR gobbles up all sockets. Gee, what a crippled machine... No idea what influence that has regarding TOR in general, as a network. But certainly you can't harm established circuits, it just prevents new circuits being build up - that affects your local TOR-software, rather than the whole net. I guess.
