Smart Key Question

I have a couple questions about the MB Smart Key....

Would it be possible to take the New Smart Key (2012 Chrome Key), and convert it to the older smart key ('97, '98, '99, '00)?

Also, would it be possible to take the internals of an MB key, and swap them into a Maybach key? I know this is possible for regular MB keys, but would it make a difference if the internals were swapped into a Maybach key?

I think I remember reading that the internals are slightly different sizes so although possible, it's not plug and play. There is a guy in TX who does key case conversions and even repairs them. Look for his thread on the For Sale/Buy/Trade/Giveaway forum. His nick is something like dkknight.
