I know people who did that... given that wd-40 is a good _solvent_, it
would work fine... not sure about long term issues, but as surface of
the print cylinder doesn't ever get lubricated, I can't imagine how it
would be harmful.

Just don't start spraying it in the works or you are likely to wash away
the proper oils and greases that _should_ be there (or at least be prepared
to do a proper lube job after you wash away any old lubricant).
