Yes, there's no real point in building at wider gauge now, the value of standardization is greater.

BUT, I'll betcha MNR at Spuyten Dyvil would have made it around the turn witch a 6' gauge (if the rails were tied down well), same for Frankford. Also, they wouldn't need well cars + their air drag for double stacks, that's a technical issue. I don't know how significant that is, freights move rather slowly and fuel is cheap.

"CNS&M ran tests w/ the Electroliners in excess of 100MPH in the 40s on ROW laid out in the 20s."

Back then we were a country that was proud of itself.
