In a month, they'll go "well, that was amusing," downgrade their subscription, never revisit that server, and probably spend a lot less on the Cartel Market for as long as they continue to play the game, because they had those robes/packs/unlocks, and now paying for them doesn't feel right.

Net result? $10 to Bio in exchange for spoiling a cartel customer on the service forever.
I don't think you did read it thoroughly. Or perhaps you just misread it. There would be no cartel packs in the premium subscription server.
