What does DLC have to do with getting hundreds of hours out of the perfectly complete as is BASE game? It's been on sale for $30 a dozen times... Regardless, I would argue it's worth throwing more money at Bethesda and buying the stuff separately (maybe not all of it, Hearthfire is kind of lame) just to support future development. Waiting for the GOTY edition because you're a cheapass doesn't give them a vote of confidence like purchasing a proper expansion (Dragonborn) at full price on day one would.
I think they will survive without one extra vote of confidence. I value my money more than giving a massive company like bethesda that for that series. Plus, I've purchased all past content for things like oblivion, fallout 3, fallout new vegas, morrowind, etc, not to mention things like the strategy guides. I don't buy guides for much, but the fallout ones are definitely worth it. And some of the stuff I've bought more than once. Like pre-orders of fallout stuff, then the GotY versions. Plus gifts of beth games. If they aren't getting the message that its still worth it to put stuff on PC after all that, then one extra buy of skyrim isn't going to change their minds. But beth has a clue. They know that ever $60 sale they make on steam for PC gives them roughly TWICE the profit of a $60 console retail sale. If you look at the financials of the big companies like EA, the PC segment generally comes close to any one other platform (such as xbox or ps3). So its well worth beth's time to port to PC, considering just those factors.

I think my pre-order money can do much more significant things funding stuff like wasteland 2, than one more full priced copy of skyrim.
