That's exactly what the rear L/S does too. And it's the reason clutch type limited slips wear out so fast.
A L/S in the front will give you a heavy self-centering feeling to the steering. At least, that's what it did on my '91. Fortunately, the '91 had the ability to unlock the front hubs, something the newer 4x4 Ranger's can't do. Of, course the air locker would be a solution to that.
