My experience in signing up for (and canceling) this card:
It takes 4-6 weeks from the eligible spend to receive points. In my case, bec. my 1st order was from the mint and it got backordered, they were billing me for the $450 waay before I got the points. On the first bill they had the charge for fee, and I called and said I'm considering cancelling so I don't want to have to pay the fee only to have it refunded in a few days when I cancel. They told me that the date it 'says' my bill is due is not the 'real' date it is owed by and as long as I pay within 30 days of due date there would be no problems. When those 30 days were ending and points still didn't post I had to pay the full fee and I figured I would get a prorated refund. When I finally got my points and called to cancel they said if I would have called one day earlier (Within 60 days of bill due date) I would have gotten a full refund but that now they would withold $75 of my payment and refund the rest. A quick chat with a supervisor took care of that and I got a full refund!!
Nice!
Were you able to transfer the 26K points out?

I have other Charge cards so I left the points in my account.

I might be interested in the next split PLAT opportunity/offer that comes up here.

Q. You also get SPG Gold from the PLAT. Does each addtional cardholder also get that benefit ?
    If so, do you retain SPG Gold after the card is cancelled ?

Probably whoever applies for the card and takes the credit hit and is responsible for the account.

What about MR points for spending? Or would those chipping in only get a card once the account is cancelled?

IMO, that seems a little steep for the hit.
I'm willing to take 10K MR and not spend on the card.

Considering that anyone can sign up, spend $1,000, get the 50K points, and cancel the card and get back most of (or the entire) annual fee.  It seems more of a favor to other people for 4 years of lounge access.

How much are people willing to pay for an (inactive) Amex platinum card with their name on it? If I get four $50 offers I'll apply.

A favor? by charging $155 and not even paying it to AMEX and just pocketing the cash?
