There is a design with little more than a micro and an EEPROM whose data is already burnt in. Data is being read at regular pace.

In order to get the extra IO pin I need, I considered to hardwire the EEPROM's /CE pin to ground.

Is that objectionable?

In case you ask, no, human life does not depend of this design.(Maybe just my self esteem).

Unless the EPROM is in some sort of a shared bus system. It should not be any problems other than slightly increased power need.
