There is always the temptation to cheat a little and start fighting the next war early. Historically, this has often been the cause of war. It is sometimes difficult to draw the line between preparation and an act of war.

We will have to vigilant for these types of dirty tricks. There is also the risk of obsolescence. What constitutes hidden at one level of technology, might be easily detected in the future. In that case, a nation might be caught with outdated war machines where they shouldn't be. When this type of enterprise is designed, the proponent must factor in plausible deniability.
