That seems like it skirts the AGI limits placed on Roth IRAs, but I can't find any evidence that it is not allowed.

It does skirt the AGI limits. If you don't have any other IRAs, it works well. If you have pre-tax traditional IRAs at the time of conversion, then the cost basis is prorated across the entire value of yours (individual, not include spouse's IRAs).
