The problem with this approach is that it doesn't get you a static IP
with proper rDNS and a host of other things...
It does if you buy an ISP account that includes a static IP and
does DNS for you or you set up your own DNS and register the server.

But that might actually cost a whole extra $6 a month and isn't it
preferable to
spend $100 a month at some colo house?


Maybe that's an option for you, but I'm looking at spending a minimum of another $60 every month to my ISP if I want those services. I haven't been sufficiently impressed to feel that they warrant that extra fee.
