Let me add, by the way, that I understand ARCs. I just wasn't aware of any larger publishers sending digital ARCs out.
Baen has been selling eARCs for several years, at least. And not only are they a higher price to begin with, the author gets a higher percentage, too. (And apparently, quite a few of the people who buy them also buy the release version later.)
