I recently spoke with Delta, and the fellow there was a mechanic/salesperson for JH back in the day.  He says he personally came up with the idea of putting a zerk grease fitting on the oval plate on the bottom, and the results were so good that JH started recommending it themselves.  YMMV and it's his story but there you go.  

I just did it to my well worn rack and it didn't help the play so it's not a panacea but I've got a spare rack that looks good that I'm planning on putting on the car and I will move the zerk plate over to that rack.  Whether there's oil in there or not, I don't see that a regular shot of grease could hurt.   And that's MY 2 cents.
