Wither it is proper side bands or other systematic noise, it is bad 
indeed, that would be part of the RF differential mode disturbances.
This assumes the source is "clean", and if it is not it should not be 
used to start with. What remains is really issues from the setup, and 
that's when signal integrity/EMI care and isolation amplifiers comes in.
