I know what you mean, It would be quite a gimmick, but it seems a bit defeatist to me. Why write something and then not let the readers read it?
Well I was thinking along the lines of writing some kind of thriller, and (initially) withholding key information from the reader with "redacted" text. It would just be a different way of building suspense and controlling the narrative. I don't know, I haven't thought it through, maybe it's an unworkable idea!
