The traces and landings might get a little bit hotter but that shouldn't affect the VRM FETs a lot IMHO.

It will lead to issues under extreme scenarios.

Remember, threadripper is essentially epyc, if/when a 32-core part comes out, the power requirements under extreme overclocks will be immerse. Putting the power plugs so far is asking for trouble.
