As we know, it comes down to money...in all things. If these airframes prove to be of economic value, they'll be taken up. I guess that remains to be determined.
There must be quite a few well maintained copies available here in the USA as the regionals dump them.
In a similar concept, there are also quite a few MD80 airframes coming available for something...freighter conversion among them. A few have appeared but not very many, IIUC.
It's a shame to see so many quality airplanes go to the chopper.
