Any oil gets on the timing belt, it needs to be replaced. I've had this confirmed by several Subaru mechanics (friends, not just dealership guys trying to take my money). I don't know about you, but I'd rather not have a $100 part cause my $6000 engine to fail. The same goes for any gasket/seal so they might as well be replaced if the job is being done. Nothing like trying to save $4 by not replacing a seal while you're there (that's hard to get at to boot).
