Yeah I just regurgitated what I've heard as common concerns in the past. Personally, when I've opened up transmissions (all two of them) they all seemed pretty nice and clean and none of them failed due to something clogging the lines.

My main message was basically to just have confidence and carry forward, and if the worst case scenario happens then just deal with it.

I've always thought the whole "do not change transmission fluids/filters" was propaganda spread by specialized transmission shops who want more work.
