Sure, but do they have equipment that will let them reliably make parts to those tolerances, so that every bearing is e.g. 0.0003 +/- 0.00001? Or even automated measuring equipment, so no one has to stand around squishing plastigauge? Certainly that's technically possible with laser measuring equipment, though I've no idea whether it's economic.
