That's what I figure, too. Honda may have specific additives in their tranny fluid as well.

I'd just keep trusting their recommendations. You've also noticed that they give general requirements for some fluids (clutch & brakes) while requiring their own fluids for other systems. That makes me think that they have specific reasons for those fluids and did their engineering work with those fluids in mind.
