I also do not ride my bikes in the dirt, the rain or even through puddles. After almost every ride I find quite disturbing quantities of filth on the bottom of the bottom bracket. This road dirt is often very gritty. I wouldn't want any of it mixing with my meticulously greased balls. Anyone who rides a bike with a cutout under the bb has gritty balls, and needs a sleeve of some sort. I'm with Sheldon that even if there is no cutout, there might be tube filth mixing with your clean grease in the bottom bracket.
