I don't think it would be all that hard for them to change their other scoreboard should they choose to. Soldier Field isn't a very good comparison because that is also a historical landmark, same with Wrigley, which brings many more restrictions with it.
Soldier Field is not an historical landmark, and the Sox renovations were from funds from a naming rights deal. The scoreboard will be replaced eventually and it will probably be the best scoreboard in the league for a season, but like smartphones and flat screen TVs, it will be outdated fairly quickly, but unlike those, it makes zero sense replacing them every couple of years.
