Do you migrate or build new VCSA 6.7 if most of the current vCenter 6.0 features are not being used

Hello everyone,


Happy holiday, What are your thoughts and best practice for my question above. Current environment uses Essential Plus running on vsphere 6.0.


Current environment:

1. 5  esxi  6.0 hosts

2. 1 windows vCenter

3. Features of vCenter not being used

4. No Backup APIs to worry about nor storage APis


Would you build a new VCSA 6.7, then add each ESXi to the vcenter then upgrade each host? I am aware of the best practices and correct order etc of doing the upgrade. But if your current vCenter is not being used why migrate and not build a new VCSA appliance.
