I have often wondered if this strategy would actually work as you suggest.
My concern is that it could be strictly interpreted that your card was used in a financial transaction between you and PayPal. If PayPal performed according to their terms then the credit card transaction might not be disputable.
I have never tested this or researched it thoroughly but you comment reminded me that this is an open question from where I am sitting.
