Or Toei could remake the series? Better animation, condense it down by cutting all of the filler fat, make changes where Toriyama wanted to do things differently in the manga (make Gohan the hero in the end), and perhaps bring in Toriyama to write out an outline for a new saga after Buu?
There are many things Toei could do with the franchise with a renewed fanbase in Japan, and the live action film will re-energize the franchise regardless of its quality (see Godzilla). And anime companies have a long history of taking their classic franchises, and updating them for new generations (see Casshern Sins, Giant Robo, Gatchaman, etc). The difference here is that there will be a palpable demand for new Dragon Ball media, especially after the '08 Special and the live action film. I'd say it's an exciting time to be a Dragon Ball fan.
