I submitted all of my applications in late September and sent letters in January to every school from which I hadn't received a decision. I can't imagine why it would hurt, and the authors of "Law School Confidential" agree.
I think the only way it may hurt is that updating your application may push it to the back of the list for review (if the school reviews in order completed). I don't know that I would take the information in Law School Confidential as gospel.
Agreed on the law school confidential comment.
I just think it makes a lot more sense to send it as a reaction to being held or waitlisted. First, because they might be expecting documents from you in that case, and second, if you send a LOCI before that happens... then you have less to talk about in any further LOCIs...
