Hmm. I haven't been around in quite a while, so why do you think it
went up this year?

I was convinced when Final Crisis was coming out that this was what
was going to happen. That was how I interpreted the tagline "Heroes
die. Legends live forever." IE, the heroes of Earth-1 would die, but
the legends would live on in another world. Although I liked FC a lot
on the whole, it would have been pretty neat if they'd done that.

I was referring to doing this on Earth-2--the original Earth--and
relaunching the iconic heroes on Earth-1. See above.

Well, you can always have more than one, right? They could someday
fight in some kind of Crisis of Infinite Mummies.
