I've read the LWN since the beginning, and I don't care about the daily stuff at all. I'm interested in their editorial comments, which have proven to be constantly high-quality over years. As long as I have a job, I'll be ready to pay $4/month (OK, make it $5/month) as a kind of subscription (i.e. reocurring payment). However, I definitively don't want LWN to close down parts of the site for subscribers-only.
On the contrary, I would be very glad to pay them in order to continue producing high quality content which is free for everyone, and I wouldn't be ready to pay if they would close the site. So, call it a "subscription", "project funding", or "donation", but in any case keep the final product free.
If needed, close down some additional services to make subscription look better, but keep the main stuff (HTML version of your weekly editorial) free for everyone!
