So, I think the answer is "depends".
I think the risks of running without traction control are exaggerated, particularly for beginners who are not going fast and who have instructors sitting next to them. Ironically, it's the intermediate or advanced driver driving solo who might be 'saved' by traction control since they tend to be the folks that wreck. But I wouldn't advocate for advanced or even intermediate drivers keeping traction control on.
