use clipping masks all the time, for cropping elements that would extend beyond the artboard. never had any problems with it.

I have a file that uses a mask, and I got a review on it saying, in effect, it was not editable. So after that, I always make a note in the file description that it has a clipping mask. And if possible, I put the masked object(s) on their own layer and label it "Clipping Mask."

Never use it. Can be a very complex feature for some buyers and file edition turns more complicated. Even for experienced users.

We do accept them, but please include a note in your description. We get a lot of calls from customers who don't understand why they can't select shapes within a masked file! Some basic instructions on how to remove the mask would be a good idea for your description too.

Also, please don't mask out tons of unnecessary shapes. Masking a few shapes hanging off the artboard is cool, but masking a whole separate illustration off the artboard just causes confusion and increases your file size. Hope this helps!
