Building wood deck over concrete slab

Is there any downside to building a low wood deck over a 12’x20’ slab of thick, uneven concrete, with the deck footings embedded in the ground straddling the outside edges of the slab, and the height of the deck just clearing the highest part of the slab? The necessary manpower and logistics of breaking up and hauling away the concrete is prohibitive.

You can do it, but you will have to seal and deny access to little animals and critters who would like to build their homes there, WITHOUT PAYING YOU RENT.
