Using ActionForm as VO

Is there any drawback in using ActionForm as the VO and pass the same to Data access tier.

We normally create a VO from within the action class retrieving the data from Action form .but this VO is almost similar to Action Formbean hence we were thinking why not use ActionFormbean itself as the VO and pass it to Data Access layer

Any thoughts please
I agree. Here's the link:
