Refitting to semiconductor sources would render this main-backup scheme totally redundant.

Manufactured articles should be made to be used, not made to be sold!

Indeed, after many years of working MA sets failures aren't rare and it isn't hard to catch a unit with emergency lighting turned on. Some SKM Trójmiasto units received LED lighting during periodic repairs. Also it is a general rule in Poland that emergency lighting must be present as such. I've seen a railway carriage with main LED lighting which also had additional LED emergency lighting.

This actually looks pretty cool with those lit..

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

Before EN57 there was a preceding short series EW55. Though EW55 was designed only for high platform operation and 3 pairs of doors needed in city operation and while EN57 is a regional unit both for high and low platforms with number of doors reduced to 2 pairs, mechanical and electrical part is more or less the same so EW55 can be called a prototype. EW55 already had fluorescent tubes and emergency lighting but that emergency lighting was reduced only to vestibules, in dedicated separate fixtures. Main compartments were dark when MA set failed. The layout of lighting in EN57 definitely can be called an improvement over the predecessor.
