Shutting car off in drive

My friend and i were having a debate about automatic transmissions. here's the scenario. let's say youre sitting at a red light with your foot on the brake and the transmission in Drive. you then turn the key off without taking it out of drive. is this bad for your transmission? she says it was bad, but i said that you have to shift to neutral or park to start it anyway, so there isnt any damage. somebody please help clarify. Ive already read the thread about shutting the car off while coasting.
