New option offers alternative to borrowing vacation points

I just saw this in an email from DVC:

Disney Vacation Club® has created a convenient new solution for Members who find themselves in need of additional vacation points to book a reservation.

This new option, designed as an alternative to borrowing from next year's allotment, allows Members the option of paying for a one-time assignment of as many as 24 vacation points from Disney Vacation Development, Inc., for $15 a vacation point ($13.33 plus $1.67 tax) to complete their reservation. (A receipt is available upon request.)

Members may use these vacation points to book Disney Vacation Club Resorts, Disney Collection Resorts, Disney Cruise Line® voyages, Adventures by Disney experiences and World Passport Collection resorts.

Note that this option is available once each use year, and the transferred vacation points are assigned only for the specific use year and therefore expire when used.
More details here

It's expensive when the going rate here is around $10 per point but I suppose as it's official it offers more peace of mind. So would anybody here consider 'buying' points to make up a lack of points for one stay? What about an option to 'sell' points back to Disney if you're not using them.

I currently live in London until I have enough DVC points to stay at Animal Kingdom Villas every day of the year
