Risk of using internal self signed certs – validate understanding & thoughts?

Risks of using such self signed certs even though it is internal to the walls of the organisation

– promoting bad behavior of accepting certificates

– lack of visibility and control from a PKI on expiry, dates, version etc. of certs

– inability to re-key, deploy, revoke certs as part of incident response

– attackers misusing such self signed – we cannot validate man in the middle attacks as effectively

any other risks can you think of?
