Need some help justifying Exchange 2007 to 2010

I am getting ready to present a hardware/software refresh. We are currently running Exchange 2007 and I would like to move to Exchange 2010. The cost to upgrade our company will be about $7,000 for licensing and CALs.

The archiving looks nice, better OWA for browsers would be nice but isn't a deal killer. We have a trixbox and I know they improved UM but I have never used UM so I don't even know if we would use it. So beyond these and being on the newest version can you guys help me justify.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Also, mainstream support for 2007 ends in 4/2012.  You can get extended support after that, but at what cost??
