What are the side-effects of renaming SharePoint Application Pool in IIS


I wonder if it's safe to rename application pool in IIS that is used by SharePoint Service Application?

This question is raised from the fact that when we create new application pool in the dialog box of creating new Service Application, this application pool is created with GUID name in IIS, and it's hard to track down which app pool in IIS is linked to SharePoint. 

There is an article in MSDN describing how to rename the app pool http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc725568(WS.10).aspx but I'm not sure how SharePoint can be affected in this case.
