Anyone run 20w-50 oil?

The 20w-50 oils I've seen are not "diesel rated" oil, what kind of damage would be done if someone ran 20w-50 in their powerstroke?

I'm not going to use it, but I remember a thread were someone was using 20w-50 and was having good results, but with no soot protection I think they might have problems down the road.
