Transmission gear when idling - D or N?

Regarding automatic transmissions, when idling for an excessive period at the traffice lights (eg 5-10 minutes) whilst stuck in the peak hour crawl, is it OK to leave the transmission in Drive, or should one slip it into Neutral?

My car is an 82 280E W123. Recently replaced the rear band so my paranoia should be obvious.

Thankyou
Spiro
