Yes, me too. I think it looks so odd when people "Armor-All" EVERYTHING, including their seats....
To be honest I have used ATF, to clean and slightly soften old hoses. Not on my Jaguar, but on my old VW Rabbit.
It seems to break the crud, but not remain to attract dirt too bad.
I also wipe if off very well.
