And they want to go to the trouble of doing that, why, exactly?

Imagine taking that to the CIO and/or budgeting people: "We want to start this
$mumble-million project to renumber".  What's the first question they'll ask?
"What's it mean for *our* bottom line?" What's the second? "Then why do we want
to spend this money?"

It just ain't gonna happen till  you have good answers to those. "We can spend
$mumble-million renumbering into 1/4 of the space, and then sell off the other
3/4 to various entities for an estimated $mumble-million+20%".

*Then* it will happen.
