Regenerative Braking

Just a thought I was having about regenerative braking and it's possible affect on axle and or gear wear. I would think the greatly increased coasting loads would cause more wear on cv axles and gears in general. I have no evidence to back this up but wondered if someone has experienced this. Wouldn't be a bad thing for the repair industry.
