The "Powers" would undoubtedly do extensive market research before jumping into any project. They will remaster and release what is profitable. Period.
The fans are always a factor in these things, as they are they market base, but if a project's expected cost-to-profit ratio isn't high enough, then it won't be pursued. That's a run-on sentence, and this one is here to fill out the paragraph.
I really wish the geek factor would ease up a bit, but after 40 years I don't think that's a possibility.
