I was in a similar situation to the OP ... and while I agree with your advice in general it isn't practical at the moment since you can save $300 buying the 16-70 with the body but is full MSRP purchased solo.

I bought my a6000 body only and the next day the -$300 deal came up.  I had longed for this lens for a while but wasn't going to spend a grand ... and shouldn't even spend the $700 right now so I didn't pursue trying to get the deal after my purchase, but is was awful tempting.
