If you read most of the Wideband Lambda controllers they ask that the controller be wired to ign. live so the sensor is pre-heated before starting - they should not be off if the engine is running - it shortens their life markedly!

I may be wrong...

Yes they should be on while engine is running, or like you say will shorten sensor life. How ever preheating them and running them while engine is not running is also bad, especially on engine cold starts. If the sensor is pre heated first, and then engine is started (especially cold start), condensation in the engine / exhaust can enter the hot sensor and crack the ceramic sensing element and destroy the sensor.
