[concurrency-interest] Putting tasks directly on TPE queue

I have read a few threads dating back 2007 about putting tasks directly
on a TPE queue. The general reply (as is mentioned in the API as well)
is to not access the queue directly. In all those threads, the
corePoolSize and the maximumPoolSize were different. What if the core
pool size is the same as the maximum pool size and all core threads are
started before any tasks are submitted on the queue? Is it still a bad
idea to put tasks directly on the queue? Can it can cause hard to track
down failures?
