I would urge us all to get the permits, even if we disagree with the policy. Playing nice with NPS will tend to keep cyclists in their good graces. Not playing nice is kind of like arguing with a cop. You might feel good about your moral superiority, but less good about the tickets/court appearances/nights in jail/vicious beatings. (No offense to any cops out there. I respect what you do, and personally don't argue. I may point out things, but respectfully and calmly.)
I would actually prefer that the permit came with the cost of the entrance fee so I don't have to carry dollerz with me on my WRIAD. (One of my WRIADS I started muy early from the intersection of Mineral Bottom and the pavement, and went through at o dark thirty. Stiffed 'em!)
But yeah, my opinion is, please get your permit. You'll have a pretty good chance of running into a ranger, and it will make the always-positive (I've never run into a grumpy ranger down there) encounter even more so.
