Release Lag Time setting

Does anyone know about the pros and cons of setting Release Lag Time to short?

(I guess this may have been discussed here before, but I couldn't find any using the search facility. That said, I seem to get unexpected / inconsistent results when I do try to use the search.)

Robin Wong recommends it. Some discussions say it drains the battery. Some suggest it may reduce shutter shock. Some suggest it has no benefit expect for exceptionally fast moving objects like racing cars etc etc
