It is like hell.  DID's are a limited and costly resource.  If your PBX
is properly engineered for your load with 2 PRIs and 25 DIDs, and you have
4000 extensions, they're going to make you pay the monthly cost of 4000
extra DIDs for this?

I don't think so.

That would almost certainly be a 'taking'.
