If it is any consolation to you I have 195,000 miles and the GM trans on my 3.0 is still solid and shifts smoothly. I have not done any fluid/filter changes.

Thanks, that's the kind of anecdotal evidence I was hoping to hear. I just want this car to get to 150k and still be worth something.

With proper care, I don't see that to be a problem whatsoever!

That is awesome indeed but I wouldn't want to advise a lack of maintenance to anyone. Always error on the side of caution, you'll never regret doing that.
