I would caution people against re-using old fluid. If it sits in a drain pan, it's very likely to collect dirt, random plant matter, dust, and anything else that's floating around in the air. You don't want that in your transmission. I think the advice is given so that you put the right amount back in (and don't overfill it by mistake), but a little care and you can put in the same amount of new fluid.
