I agree, it's a damn great article. Don't forget there are the subscriber links you can use too (though I guess they probably expire after some amount of time).

Subscriber links expire when the article itself become freely available. Thus far, few people have noticed the expiration happening...:)

Couldn't they 301 back to the original article? Or would that add up to too much extra stuff to keep track of.

That is, in fact, exactly what they do; the links never break, they just cease to be relevant. (If you look at a subscriber link URL, you'll see that it has the original article number in it so the redirect can be done without us having to actually remember that the special link ever existed).
