Why would anyone write a bot that downloads the ads on a page? Most likely a bot is going to ignore these, especially ads delivered by javascript.

A competitor - to get you kicked out of an ad program.

This misses the point that it's more difficult to decline to serve ads to those types of bots, unless you use a sophisticated whitelisting system like IncrediBill's.
