Even that approach would only work if Cuba insists on having a valid
passport cert when issuing their visas.  If they're willing to issue you
a tourist or guest-worker visa with either no documentation or
minimal documentation identifying you (e.g. your American Express digicard),
there's not much the US could do to stop them.  And Cuba might even issue
temporary passports for that sort of thing.
