Query on your airspace chart. There is an extensive use of E class. I thought for the time being we were getting heaps of G class with IFR-IFR seperation provided?

Looking for the savings often quoted, I then supposed that rather than drastically rolling out E class the Implimentation Group would do some G to E then quote ICAO and stop seperation service for G Class and retrench ATC staff.

I further noted the compusary use of transponders in E class in Aus where it is not required in USA. Made me wonder if we may go for IFR-IFR notification not seperation and achieve more redundancies. ( pure speculation )

Surely the only serious savings can come by this means?

Not trying to be smart just an honest Question.
