Converting On-Demand Ec2 instance to Reserved

Hypothetical situation lets say you have setup your environment running with On-Demand EC2 instances and you want  to switch those instances to Reserved however due to software license restrictions for the software you have installed to the On-demand instances you cannot change hardware. Is it possible to change on-demand instances to reserved without changing the hardware ?

"Reserved instances" is simply a billing issue – if you are using the same type of instance as you have reserved – it will automatically be billed as reserved- nothing need be done. In case of multi-acct situation to avail this same benefit you simply have to enable consolidated billing.
