Seems like MWAA would have a vested interest in a closer VRE station, as would Amazon. The Pentagon and the corporations like Boeing wouldn’t appreciate it moving, but I suspect they would appreciate the island platform - it means the possibility of Amtrak service, at least discharge-only/board-only to & from places like Charlotte and Norfolk/Newport News.
