You would be removing a huge core part of what is SMF, I can't really see why anyone would want to do that.

How you can help SMF

"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum.
 Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas

Unread topics is one of the most useful functions for users. Removing it will actually discourage users from participating if they can’t find new content to reply to.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

No good deed goes unpunished / No act of charity goes unresented.

I wouldn’t be worried about performance unless you actually already have a problem. Preventative maintenance of problems is really, really hard.
