Those who insist on only using one foot with an auto are just making

Using your right foot only is no more work for your right foot than
driving a manual.

That's what I do.

What I don't want to do is train my left foot to do braking, too much
potential for ****-up.

Cant see it can produce a ****up because even if you do
the wrong thing in the other type of car it will still work fine.
