What's wrong with opening 1?

What's wrong with opening 1 with 55 in the majors and reversing values? 

Take this hand, for example:

North
KQJxx
AJxxx
KQ
A

Then you can rebid 2S and 3S and still end up in 3NT if partner has no support. If you open 1S then rebid 3H, you may lose a 5-3 heart fit or end up in a 5-2 fit, instead of 3N

 

I always open the highest ranking of two 5 card suits but my partner opened 1 with a hand like this and I don't see a problem.

I'm sure I'll be told quickly!Smile
