I think back to Jim Shooter one day declaring "Anyone can be Iron Man! Anyone can be Captain America!"

Well, sure. Anyone can wear the suits. But being Iron Man or Captain America isn't just about the wardrobe. It's about the MAN. About who he is, and how he as lived his life. His personal experiences. His beliefs and philosophies.

"James Bond" is a person, not a suit. So, as noted, unless they want to follow the lead of the first CASINO ROYALE movie, and turn "James Bond" into a code name (superfluous, since he already has one), JAMES BOND remains the guy we've been reading about and viewing since the early 1950s (even as the actors change), and 007 becomes transferable.

Simple, really.
