Low light plants in a pond?

If I had a pond, say 18" deep, can anyone think of any reasons why it would be a bad ideas to put some low light plants (dwarf sag for instance) in the pond?

Full sunlight is "high light" and then some....So you might need to provide some shade, floaters, etc to make it suitable for true low light plants. However, dwarf sag does well in high light, anyways.
