I'm looking at it from the perspective of life beyond 100k miles. I'm fairly confident Nissan will approve my warranty claim for a replacement pack and I know that the replacement 40Kwh pack won't be covered beyond 100k miles and I know I have to drive to work ~500 miles a week. Why not get as much as I can out of my current 30kwh pack before submitting the claim so that when the 40Kwh pack is installed I "didn't leave any Ah on the table" with the old pack.
Lot's of reasons, but they come down to the old saying that "a bird in the hand is easily worth 1.1 birds in the bush."
TODAY, Nissan is offering a 40 kWh replacement pack
The future is uncertain:
Nissan may decide to no longer offer 40 kWh replacement packs
Nissan may go BK and your warranty may not be honored at all
Nissan may decide to honor your warranty with a crappy refurb pack
Nissan may decide to honor your warranty with a crappy 40 kWh pack (if they do not already.)
You may decide to sell your car, and your sacrifice today was wasted
Your car may develop repair issues you decide are not worth paying for, and your sacrifice today was wasted
Your car may be involved in an accident and then not only will the replacement value be less, your sacrifice today was wasted
I presume there are others; these are just off the top of my head
