I doubt there's any variant that Boeing hasn't studied as such.
The question is: who'd pay for a conversion program for such a small number of aircraft, the majority of which are nearly 20yrs-old and heavily used.
I don't think age and use have much to do with it anymore. CAM has converted 763s with well over 100,000 hours on them already and age-wise they are operating line number 17.
And Line Number 6 (N740AX)!
How many pilots can say they regularly fly a single-digit line number of any model of transport category aircraft?
