ATF is much thinner than any grade of engine oil. If you use ATF I would expect that the various bearing and wear surfaces are more subject to damage and premature failure. If ATF was required and you used engine oil, I suspect that the oil might not flow to all of the places with tight clearances and also cause premature wear.
