Is there maintenance other than changing fluid needed for transmission?

I know that both of mine (the 91 and 92) have been well maintained for the entirety of their lives, so I'm cautiously optimistic that I will exceed 300k in each case by a good margin. However, in cases where one cannot be confident in prior maintenance history, it seems (obviously) that there's a greater likelihood that maintenance has been neglected and therefore a greater likelihood of a shortened life span. No amount of faithful maintenance going forward can undo damage already done.
I change my transmission fluid every 30k. I think the manual calls for every 15k which my mechanic agrees is ridiculous. But is there any other maintenance or adjustments needed along the way?
