Default Rusted slave cylinder

I took my truck in to have the slave bled but the shop did not want to touch it because the bleeder valve is rusted up and they did not want to be responsible for having to remove the transmission if they broke it off trying to get it open. They soaked it in penetrating oil but stopped short of putting real torque on trying to get it off. It shifts reasonably well so should I just live with it until something serious happens?

The one I just bought for my B2 tranny swap, was all aluminum.
So far as I can remember, neither the plastic or Aluminum will rust.
