I know a guy who did that, and the next day his dog bit him violently. Connected? certainly seems so. The consequences could be far reaching.

I used the generic stuff in my van for several years and I was constantly towing with it and generally beating the heck out of it and it was fine. As long as you stay on top of leaks and make sure to change the filter and fluid occasionally, I think you should be fine. And as you say, it will be drained out anyway soon enough.
IMO the quality of the fluid counts less than the habit of maintenance and changing said fluid as part of the maintenance schedule.
