Huck369 had an Outback I think that he ran the FWD fuse in for a whole year or something like that, just for the sake of experimentation. He said it worked fine the whole time, even after he took it out.
My guess is running in FWD would unevenly wear the tires unless they were rotated frequently, this would be a problem when returning to AWD. Rain & gravel don't go away in summer, still worth having traction when needed.
