Turning off engine with an automatic

I've heard some posts saying that you shouldn't turn off the engine while coasting if you have an automatic. The only reason that I've found for this is that the transmission pump turns off. Are there any problems that could arise from turning off the engine? I P&G a lot and I'd like to start turning off the engine during long glides.

Goal one= 30mpg on The Monte by changing the nut that connects the steering wheel to the seat.
