It's very easy to be eligible to make Roth contributions but not to make traditional IRA contributions. Be careful here - check your AGI and be aware of the other rules that limit or eliminate your contribution amount.

I believe anybody with $2000 or more of income can contribute $2000 to a traditional IRA. I think you are warning that it may not be tax deductible. But the growth will still be tax deferred. I think it makes good sense even if you can't deduct it.
