As I hoped, a publisher has come up with some real figures about the effect of going OA after a short embargo. See below from PNAS (forwarded with Diane's permission).
I wonder whether there are other publishers on this list who have statistics they could share?

In 2000, we were free after one month. We lost 11% of our paid subscribers in 2001, higher than the industry average, and we switched to 6 months in 2002. The move did not stem the loss in subscribers but it was reduced to 9% in 2002. We do not have hard data to show a causal effect of our one month policy, but the correlation certainly motivated a change.
