You are pointing out two things that I think are precisely the reason it is bad. Metro's customers do not want to be on a contract. Hence why they have Metro in the first place. Most of Metro's customers are still on CDMA. The cost for the carrier to transition is not financially feasible. In the end, it would be like the company telling most of Metro's 9 million people to take a hike.

I don't see the logic. Tmobile could possibly refarm their spectrum but it doesn't seem very strategic. It would leave them in a chaotic position. They are already an outcast with their current AWS spectrum holdings.

I say leave well enough alone.
