Google Earth Engine's coding best practice says to export intermediate results. It says

Such large samples typically need to be exported. Do not expect such samples to be available interactively (for example through print()) or usable (for example as input to a classifier) without exporting them first.

But why? And when it says not usable, does it mean that the result would be incorrect or the code can't run?

Code can't run. Specifically, the computation will time-out (after around 5 min). The guide recommends that intensive computations be done in steps, exporting the intermediate results, as exporting allows for a longer run time.
