I was just commenting on the point made that by the time you would be qualifying for $0 bronze, you would be qualifying for CSRs. For people closer to 65, you can get to a $0 bronze way before qualifying for CSRs. Sure, a 94% CSR has far richer benefits than a bronze plan. If you can get there, great! Manipulating your recognized income to get to a 94% or 87% CSR (where the CSR differential is significant) is a much different task than getting down to 400% FPL to get premium subsidies though.
