I use the dullcote bare on the covering myself. It will scratch off if you try to or if you put tape on it and peel the tape off but otherwise is pretty durable. (unless this is a fuel plane then I don;t think I would use it at all...)
Steel wooling the covering gives it a nice satiny finsh which looks good if you are trying to make it look like silk or something but doesnt't completely dull it. Dullcote on grey ultracote for example gives a completely flat military finish.
So it sort of depends on exactly the look you want. Buy a can and then test on your exact covering material and see what it looks like. Different manufacturers and different colors have slightly different results too...
