CIS-E hypothetical question

What would happen if the fuel pump/filter/accumulator was not providing
full spec pressure to the fuel distributor & associated control systems?
I know what happens if the fuel pump is significantly below spec, the
engine sputters and will not run under load (BTDT).  But, suppose the
pressure is, say, only 10-20% below spec.  Would the system work ok,
just at a lower power level?  Would it work, but some of the adjustment
systems would not function appropriately (i.e. differential pressure in
the fuel distributor)?
