Would you buy Dominion Collector's Edition?

I've been following along with the Kickstarter campaign for the Suburbia Collector's Edition (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tedalspach/suburbia-collectors-edition.

It got me thinking about a Dominion version.  One big box with everything.  Improved art (bleeding edge instead of borders?) and production quality.  A comprehensive rulebook.  Maybe oversized landscape cards.  Suburbia is doing 20 player colors for an extra price...not sure that is a huge deal in Dominion, but you get the idea.

If Suburbia can do US$1,000,000 and counting, Dominion should do pretty well.  However the one big problem is the price point.  I'm guessing it'd have to be in the ballpark of $500.  Would you buy it?

No.
I already own all the dominion cards, why would I buy them again?

I don't think enough people would buy this, as the target audience is people who spent $500 on the game already...

It's such awesome game series that fans are willing to rebuy them again?

Otherwise, you need new cards anyways because you didn't sleeve.

One big box with everything.
I'd be interested in a good storage solution, if standardising and mass production gave economies of scale compared with the third-party ones, but I gather Rio Grande has consistently expressed disinterest.

Buying the storage solution along with another copy of all the cards sounds a lot less like fun.

As a further complication, complete Dominion is now so heavy that it's into the area of special handling procedures, at least under UK employment law, so it couldn't be warehoused and fulfilled in the usual way!

Improved art (bleeding edge instead of borders?)

Definitely not. Glimpsing cards would become too easy. Playing cards have a border for a reason!

and production quality

You can't produce the cards themselves differently. If you do, people won't be able to incorporate future expansions.

A comprehensive rulebook.

That one is potentially interesting. But it's tricky to see how Rio Grande as a manufacturer could build value around it when the expectation is that you can read the rulebooks by downloading them for free from their website and/or look at the Dominion Strategy wiki, Nick Knutsen's complete rules, etc.

Maybe oversized landscape cards.

No. They wouldn't fit in the randomiser deck, and one complaint I never see is that Dominion doesn't take up enough table space.
