Methylation sensitive enzymes are more useful for plants as their genome contains large repetitive regions due to duplication events. PstI is methylation sensitive in plants as in plants methylation normally is in non-CpG context.

Choosing methylation insensitive RE can result in sequencing non-informative tags from repeat regions increasing the cost and has no other consequence. But this will depend on the genome and I do not think it would be a concern for non-plant species.

If you have access to Pippin instrument ddRAD would be a better choice.
