To make a long story short: backward compatibility.

If you have full win2k, xp on your network, feel free to
disable it.

up side: Disabling null connection would improve security,
according to the MS guys.

down side: Some network distribution software (say, norton
antivirus corporate edition) would make use of this null
connection. Those software would usually make note in
the "trouble shooting section" or FAQ... that is, where
you will only check out when you got problems...
