We'd just see a boatload of "new" EDPs on Ebay.

They could do it with minimal effort by packaging two of the current units 
the same chassis, with the BrotherSync already hooked up, possibly with a 
power supply. It'd be 2U high, but a lot of other boxes are 2U high and 
complains. This would allow them to lower the price on the 2nd unit without
risking losing sales to people who really only wanted one but thought they 
make some money by selling off the "freebie" for a profit.
