Well, this sure turned into an active discussion! Some follow up:
The 5D L plate sells for $50 or less. People just are not looking for them. The 5DmkII L plate sells for $75 and up. I wanted to save some money and do a slight mod and keep it functional. However I realized the 5DmkII has the timer plug in a different position requiring significant modification to get the 5D L plate to work on a mmii. I ultimately bought a standard (non-L) bracket for the mkii and that worked well enough for my trip. I may get a mkII l bracket, when those prices drop also.
I've also realized how many of these I have around: 5D L bracket, 1D standard, 30D standard, long plate for 200-400mm lens, 200 1.8L bracket, and not a 5Dmkii. ANyone need an old bracket? the 200 1.8L bracket comes with a 200 1.8 attached
