Smackboy, my experience with this has been...

Bindings too far back:  shovels difficult to engage; feel the need to get body way forward over the tips to get the skis to respond to tipping movements; ski tips are skittish or flappy at high speed (unless body is way forward and skis evenly weighted); skis hard to control in crud / broken snow (ie. shovels easily deflected).

Bindings too far forward:  whole ski feels skittish and hard to control, like skiing on marbles; very poor edge engagement; tails wash out under pressure in a turn.

Others may have further insight, but the above are what I have felt.
