I don't think the issue is with increasing clearances so much as it is one of knocking loose old crud that's attached itself to the innards of the engine where it can find its way into the moving surfaces such as bearings/cyl walls and cause damage.

The purpose of a detergent oil is to pick up contaminants and keep them in suspension so the oil filter can do its job. If you don't have an oil filter, then that dirty oil just recirculates.
