Of course they do. But see here http://www.milevalue.com/dont-pay-the-75-close-in-fee-on-united-trick/ MMS posted it after he did. So no Taynes on MMS.

Does this work? Is there a better way

Is there a way to book a mixed class RT (Y one way, J the way back) and not pay J fare for the whole trip?

For the same reason it's different than churning.

Churning is officially allowed. Pggm is a glitch in the system

1. Not true (at least with some cards).
2. Point is, it's 2 completely different tricks that don't depend on each other.
