Suggested Solution

Doubt there is any way to get to it to oil it. Plus any oil could drip or be thrown onto clutch.
It could go for ages, and tbh when the gearbox is out. I would advise to replace the whole clutch anyway. So really it won't matter If the bearing damages the clutch.
But you should have years out of it as long as you are aware of it and keep your foot off the clutch as much as possible.
