i'm not a mechanic but i'd wager the following hypotheses:
1) generates excessive heat, ...not good for clutch fluid, ..tranny...
2) clutch fluid doesn't work good if hot...
3) clutch disk could fail, break apart, ...potential hazard for occupant..
...i'm sure some folks continue to drive around if they have a slipping clutch, ...but if it's bad, i'd err on getting it replaced... it won't get any better...
