Permanently disable IWO and others balancers in Simplivity?

What are the consequences for a Simplivity federation and cluster to function permanently without IWO mechanisms and other balancers (IWO and balancers disabled)? Can a Simplivity federation / a Simplivity cluster / a Simplivity node function properly without IWO and balancers?
My question will probably seem a bit odd but some of my managers had this idea because they find that Simplivity does not distribute resources correctly ...

Regards

But if IWO and balancers are stopped, who ensures correct data distribution and initial placement of the virtual machines in the Simplivity cluster (for example, ensuring that the data allocation rule between the two availability zones is respected) ?

Is this setting officially supported by HPE?

Thank you in advance for answers.
