From a marketing stand, having people keeping multiple accounts for 24 hour trading would be more profit than having people close those accounts, no? How many active accounts would be lost just from the 24 hour traders? Letting people buy plat via game cards and LoN seems similar.
To be clear, the "link dead" approach would still mean that that account is logged in. So that if you tried to login another character, your trader would be kicked off. That's not due to any marketing reasons, that's just a side-effect of that particular approach. But it would allow you to at least shut off your machines while being in trader mode while at work, or overnight, etc.
