Is there any reason not to do it, as long as I don't have a need to start receiving my benefits ... particularly since this loophole may be closed sometime soon?

I don't see any reason not to do it.

Also, I doubt "file & suspend" would get closed. Unlike the SS payback scheme I identified a few years back that only affected a small number of wealthy people (i.e., those with the $150,000 to $200,000 in ready cash needed to fund the payback) file and suspend has a large constituency of average folks. Congress would get an earful if they changed it.
