Use what you want, it's your paint. Silicone is damaging to paint. It is a cheap quick shine that long term damages the paint. It is used in cheap products to disguise the lack of quality ingredients. Mequires, as an example, makes two levels of products. The Professional Line is a uniformly good product line with a few great products. The consumer product line is uniformly terrible. The mass market (Pep Boys, NAPA, K-Mart, etc.) wants national advertising budgets and a fat profit margin. These costs have to come out of something. The bottles cost the same, so the quality of the ingredients suffer. Raw silicone oil is very cheap, so it is one way to lower the costs.
As an example, if you ever have to have an area repainted that has had silicone on it, the paint will not adhere. Silicone is the main cause of "fish eyes" or areas of improper adherence of the paint. It also displaces the proper emollients in the paint and is the main cause of premature ageing of the paint. Most people call it oxidation of the paint, when in fact it is actually loss of the paint emollient oils.
There is nothing that will totally remove silicone from paint. A product called cat cracker that is designed to remove it, does not work all that well.
