(Honestly I'm not sure if the grades haven't shaken out to leave the closest analogue to 175 old school as 190.).

Honestly? If doing something like that you'd surely just combine the U180 and the minor counties (<180 average over 16). Very a priori logical really - massive duplication in the strength of players you'd want and there surely can't(?!) be anyone fielding teams in both.
Can't see it really hurting the smaller counties U180 teams, and it'd let the bigger ones use all the 180-185 players who are keen enough but currently cut out of things. Shrug.
Yorkshire U175 certainly got soundly beaten by several SCCU teams in our time
