Bad for paint!
I have not /seen/ any adverse effects personally. I do wash it off
paint and rubber (tires) immediately with soap and water.
I think the newer paints and tires are not as adversely effected as the
old stuff but I don't want to find out.
Brake fluid can be stored for a while if sealed. It does collect water
so sealing it is important. I am sure others will have other opinions
You can bleed a system by opening the ports at the calipers and keeping
the reservoir full but I would clean it up, especially the tires.
