Freedom Fighters? Again?

I don't get DC's determination to use these Quality heroes as a group or not at all. What I need, I think, is a sprawling JLA/JSA/FF epic that will give me a reason to care who these people are.

Let's have Doll Man and the Atom learn how best to exploit being six inches tall. If Marvel Divas and Birds of Prey can work, then surely Phantom Lady, Jesse Quick and Big Barda can work up a little chemistry. Hawkman and Black Condor. The Ray and Captain Atom. Black Canary, the Red Bee and the Bulleteer (remember her?). Uncle Sam and the Phantom Stranger. (If, in fact, they're not actually the same person.)

DC has tons of characters in their closet in need of rehabilitation. I wonder what Batman and Robin and Knight and Squire would make of Mister Scarlet and Pinky.
