You should do what's in your best interest no matter the effect on the other players at the table. Note that I am not saying it's okay to stall.
There's a problem in that "what's in your best interest" is partly subjective. So for example, compare stalling near the bubble in order to ensure min-cashing in a tournament where that would mean a few cents or even a few dollars vs. a tournament you probably satellited into where min-cashing would be thousands of dollars.
Similarly with AA near the bubble in the same hypothetical situations.
