You raise an accurate point, but personally I think a lot of this stuff is a load of crap. Stickers are supposed to corrode your helmet. UV light will destroy gear faster than tape. Supposedly storing your fuel bottle in the same house will destroy gear too. I've already posted my thoughts on using a marker pen and buying second hand kit.
We (very understandably) get ansey about the minutest details of the care of the gear that keeps us alive - then we have the gall to actually use it, dragging it across rock, snow, ice, sand and dirt.
