Not to mention, if it proved really really popular, they could release a revised edition. Or perhaps annotated one - Louis L'amour did that latter when some of his PD books were published by other companies, he put out official versions with notes (and a long rant about the other publishers)

But realistically, unless you are a best selling author, I think $25,000 for a back list title is more than they would make from residual sales.
