I've a vague recollection of once having 2 business groups using the same job structure and the business decided they needed to have unique structures. When we moved one business group to the new structure it resulted in the assignment records (including historic records) having to be updated to point to a revised job id. Can't remember encountering any other problems.

We use around 10 BGs, and had to change the People Group flexfield for some of the BGS. But we did not have data in the flexfield column for the new BGs, so it was fine..
If you're adding new segments to a flexfield, you will have to validate all the data.. Can be done, but need to be managed properly - all child objects need to be updated, elements links etc using the Ids will change etc..
Log an SR and Oracle might provide scripts.
