Depends on network size. You can have multiple failures happening in the
same week, and you may not necessarily have all the spares to cover the
replacements at the same time, in all the locations.

But yes, I agree that if it makes sense to buy cold spares than pay for
RMA support, go for it. As long as you are still paying for TAC support
if it's something you find useful.
