The gasket sealer doesnt sound like too bad of an idea but whats the cons with doing it? As you said you dont do it yourself

Cheers mate appreciate your help
Any material other than oil that gets on the sealing surface of the crank and seal can shorten the life of the seal. The outer surface of the seal is rubber and fits snuggly into the bore. Installed properly you really don't need the extra assurance and the seal stays clean.
