Developers - Wordpress - Please tell me if I'm wrong

Developers please tell me if I'm wrong...
I have a client which for the last two years I have built bespoke php websites and bespoke php content managements systems for them to edit the content of their websites.
Now they are asking for all my work to be converted to Wordpress websites. I have explained I'm not sure half the unique features I have created can me done in Wordpress.
I have always said to my client is the reason why I create bespoke websites compared to creating Wordpress / Joomla websites is there are no restrictions. Wordpress / Joomla is made for the masses and at some stage you will be restricted by the capabilities of the software. I understand that there are various modules that you can integrate, but if you need to do anything a bit unique you will be stuck.
I assume the reason why my client persists with the "I want Wordpress" website arguement is because he wants it cheaper and be more self sufficient as he understand the wordpress platform.
Am I wrong? All feedback will be much appreciated
