What is a “bad quality” package?

When I try to install sonic-visualiser_1.9cc-1_amd64.deb via the Software Center the following warning message is displayed:

The package is of bad quality

The installation of a package which violates the quality standards isn't allowed. This could cause serious problems on your computer. Please contact the person or organisation who provided this package file and include the details beneath.

Lintian check results for /home/ak/Downloads/sonic-visualiser_1.9cc-1_amd64.deb:

I understand that this means the package doesn't meet Debian policy and I know how to override the warning and install the package anyway.

What are the risks of doing so?
