If a replacement LCD glass cover was available for the D300 that was both harder (Like the D3), and less prone to glare, would you replace yours?

Just wondering if there is a market for something like this....

My first D300 had some streaks on the underside of the glass. I exchanged that one, and the second body didn't have the streaks/fog, but did have a lot more dust.

That got me thinking about purchasing replacement glass so that I could take off the original, clean everything in a dust-free environment, then install the new one. I'm sure I could send mine off to Nikon, but I don't want to be without my camera.

Replacing the original glass with an improved version would make the prospect of doing it myself even more appealing!

I'm wondering if I could simply replace the factory glass with one of the Giottos Schott glass protectors. The dimensions are the same.... I may have to experiment and post the results!
