for some routes where some parts are electrified it can be good, no need of loco change, just shift of settings like automatic transmission cars.
can be tried in few sections, if doesnt work out then should be pulled out.

Could be, but the rate at which sections are being electrified,i don't see much future for them, it's true that some sections would be non electrified, but then we have enough HHP EMDs

the number should be limited only.
no need to produce in abundance, as its quite costly setup.
