I hate to see it go, but economically $150m per 748 really doesn't make that much sense. And it make the list price of $378m/$379m really silly.
The point might be to keep the production line going. If you just stop it for a moment it might easily be gone forever. Didn't they claim it could survive at a rate slightly below one a month now? That would help to wait for new freighter orders as more orders might be coming given that air cargo gets going again.
