I normally use a light lubricant like WD40 though its disadvantage is that it quickly disappears and has to be done regularly. You would do well to stay away from grease for the locks as they tend to retain a lot dust leading to seizure of the lock.

It should be fine, but may attract dust & dirt as mentioned above. Mine have ordinary grease on the runners and catches which was put on by the person I bought the car from. Not had any problems yet, but only 2 months usage so not sure about the long term.

+1 for silicone aerosol. Doesn't attract / hold onto muck and doesn't dry out. I use one called GT85.
