My 0 degree Snow Lion Polarguard bag is more like a 40+ degree bag now. 
I camped on Isle Au Haute in Miane in Oct for 3 years running and one
year it was in the 30's at night and I froze my ass off. After I
purchased the bag in Helena, MT in March '75 (honeymoon) I slept in the
Bitterroots and the Rockies without a tent and was comfortable until the
last night when it diped below 0 degrees.  Your theory is still valid.
