The "hydro" fluid is just regular engine oil.

I see about your other points though. I hadn't heard of these problems but I'm sure someone had them or Dixie wouldn't have changed the system.

The reason I could think of is if there is a major hydro pump or wheel motor failure, all of that crap in the oil could get into the T gear box because that is not filtered.
