I hope you weren't being sarcastic/kidding about the galvanic corrosion because I'm going to feel pretty stupid if you were. I emailed a BD Rep about it cause I'd rather not have my slings breaking. Here's what he said:

Where did you read such a thing? BD does not use any such 'coating' on
any of its quickdraws so it's a little difficult to comment. I've
actually never heard of this. Make sure you're getting good info.

This rubber 'ring' actually has to do with holding the rope-end biner
firmly in place so it doesn't flip around when you're trying to clip it
from a tough stance (it's quicker, easier to do, etc).

It's perfectly fine to use Quicksilver or Oz Draws and/or Carabiners for
any style of climbing/mountaineering use.
