When you say that it's not worth a trip to the dealers........I assume that the oil leak is coming from the 'pinion seal' in the differential assembly (differential oil drain plug shown in photo). Does this mean that if I leave it as it is, I would have to top up the differential oil occasionally? Also, is this something that will get worse over time?

The car isn't under warranty but I suppose I could try the goodwill route.

Yes, and yes and potentially yes.

It's going to be a new pinion seal then.......not taking any chances on a car like this!
