A couple things worth noting about the Netflix cancellation page:

If you do in fact cancel your Netflix account, they'll actually keep your preferences around for 10 months, just in case you want to come back and don't want to start from scratch. So, like they say, all your profiles, preferences and viewing history "will be waiting for you."

Netflix also offers up other plan options. So maybe you'll still stick around if you just want to save some money but not kill off Netflix altogether.
