I don't mean that it's full from a financial perspective, but full in an argument-ending "this is the way of the future" sense.

Edit: There are ≈80 missions listed on the link there, 200 launches for their own missions would provide ample opportunity to derisk their customers by reusing launch vehicles beyond their currently marketable mileage and proving their safety (I can imagine that one would want some pretty steep discounts for a rocket that's been used 5 times given current success rates).

Also im-proving the safety by getting tons of experience on what works and what breaks, while only risking some of your own hardware.

I definitely agree with you on this point. More launches means less failures per n launches.
