The question is not whether the Byzantines could expand, but what form it would take if it survived to the present.

Well, in that thread I was trying to steer the discussion towards Byzantium's survival into the modern era.  As you can see I started by posting some ideas as to what the Byzantine army might have looked like and what it might have been composed of in the 16th and 17th centuries.  Also, I think for Byzantium's survival, it would have to have expanded from its 15th century form in order to survive; in other words, reconquering Anatolia and the Balkans.
