No, I learned the sani trick from moto where the repercussions for having a grip slide is potentially much higher than on a mtb (DH race runs at the elite level may approach).  I know guys who use paint as well, but I've had that slip on me - just once, but I never gave it another chance after that.  (I should note that after that incident I started safety wiring them as backup as well)  After riding in the pissing rain all winter, now that my ESI silicone grips are "ventilated" there's a bit of movement - but I think that has less to do with the adhesive bond than it does to the material just breaking down and stretching/tearing.  I need to replace those grips...
