In fact, logged in to SD, the following appears:

  Schedules Direct offers two data services. With the newer SD-JSON service, lineups are managed
  within the application. The legacy SD-DD (XML) service requires you add a lineup below.

I've 'unselected' all my channels at SD, just to further prove the
point (and I still get listings via SD-JSON). Someday, I'll just
delete the lineups completely - baby steps.
