Default Shuttle Atlantis

So the Shuttle Atlantis has finished her "last" mission, but is going to be fitted out as a rescue vehicle for the last (two) planned flights. What are the possibilities that the ship could, though not necessarily actually be used unmanned to deliver one last cargo to the ISS and leave her (docked) there as another crew quarters? Or a one-time rescue (return) ship after some mods? Shame to let them rust away from glory sitting in some museum, let her and (the other shuttles) go up and permanently grace the sky they were made to fly in. They could give the station three more good cargo runs even without a crew. Also barring the possibility they could become a navigation hazard!

Thinking out loud.
