Drop-in replacement - T440p CPU to Broadwell?

I know that some motherboards let you upgrade the Haswell cpu to a Broadwell cpu, as these generations are pin-compatible. I am wondering if this would be possible with a T440p?

 

I wouldn't consider it for just CPU performance gains, as that is not enough to justify the $$, however if Broadwell got cheap enough (since Skylake is already out) it would be cool to update to a chip with the latest Iris Pro graphics, as those have better performance than the supplied  discrete NVIDIA 730M part. Just thinking out loud here.  :-)
