Surely no one would place their Wilson speakers in a dusty environment.

Normally, grills on woofer cabinets and off from mid and tweeter cabinets. For critical listening all grills off.

Nothing official Marc.

At home, grilles are on most of the time. Listening critically I always have grilles off.

Whenever I do a demo, I always have grilles off.

Funny, I found where I saw the recommendation to leave on. From the original Stereophile review.
The Sashas' paintwork was literally flawless. And the grilles, which are recommended to remain in place during use—another line I toed—actually fit. Think of it.

I love these measurements. Seems like they have a little built in tone control.

This graph was taken with the Sasha's grille removed; with the grille in place, which is how AD auditioned the Wilsons, reflections from the grille frame filled in some of the depressions between 2 and 8kHz, at the expense of reducing output above 10kHz by 1dB or so. Although I don't usually comment on how closely a pair of speakers

These Sasha 1s are great.
