I reguarly have about 30 kegs of beer stored in this manner in the basement. No problems whatsoever.
Won't the beer eventually absorb the co2 in the headspace causing the pressure on the lid to drop? It seems like it is possible you could lose the seal. I would check them every once in a while, or just add a little co2 every once in a while.
Great, I hate primer so it's good news. I usually never have many in waiting, but after this winter I plan to catch up.

I don't add co2 regularly for any reason. Though I could see it being an issue if stored this way for a long period... I wouldn't say i've gone more than 6 months before attaching co2 to carbonate the beer. I've never had one lose the seal yet...
As long as the kegs are purged and will hold the pressure to seal them, I say no.
