Times Digital Workaround?

The Times announced plans to start charging for its digital content:

All subscribers who take home delivery of the paper will have free and unlimited access across all Times digital platforms except, for now, e-readers like the Amazon Kindle and the Barnes & Noble Nook. Subscribers to The International Herald Tribune, which is The Times's global edition, will also have free digital access.

So what if you became a subscriber and then just always suspended home delivery (crediting your account and not donating the credit for the duration of your vacation to provide The Times to schools)? Isn't that a win-win? You get the digital version for free and the Times gets to count you as a subscriber (and thus amp up their subscription numbers to advertisers). Am I missing something here?

    Or maybe there's no need to go to such great lengths.
