Life span of ECU? 900 1994

I am a believer in preventative maintenance, of replacing things before they fail, especially those that can leave you at the side of the road.

I realize this is not always possible.

In this spirit, though, does it make sense to replace the ECU at a certain point rather than wait for the day it fails? How about other electronic parts that will fail?

Or is this a case where the lifespan has no rhyme or reason, and the replacement may be more a detriment to reliability than the original?

In other words, if not broke, don't fix?

Your thoughts appreciated. Thanks.
