It's fine to run. The processor will probably throttle down to 1ghz.
Other than that, just take care to ensure the magsafe doesn't come out - sudden crashes are not good for file directory systems.
I think all Intel Mac portables throttle down to 1 GHz when the battery is removed. I've no idea why, nor have I heard of a workaround.
I love the magnetic connector, but battery-less operation is where the MagSafe idea comes loose (pun intended). If you don't want to run with a battery for whatever reason, make sure you have plenty of slack in the cord.
(I miss my PowerBook G3. Not even Steve Ballmer's heaviest chair could knock out that power cord.)
