Your grand cunning plan will work UNTIL

some intern at a company somewhere decides that $CLOUD is mandatory and that the previous ON/OFF feature is no longer useful.

I don't use iCloud for anything other than transferring images from my iDevice to my MBP. Then they get deleted from the iDevice once two backups have been taken to fast USBC drives. I have so far managed to refuse all of Adobe's attempts to get me to use their cloud. I feat that might not last much longer.
