One technique we're doing this week with a client is taking an attack
tree and marking it up with dollar values. I.E. if you wanted to buy
an 0day in X component, how much would it cost?

This then is a simple summation to produce a "how much is it to get
into the internal network from the internet" which the business can
use to help them decide yay/nay on the project as a whole depending on
their own view of the threat and the value of the information they are

Care to share the generalized outcome?  Perhaps something like the client
chose a branch of 4 0days that had a value between $10,000 and $50,000?
Assuming you had a way to state x, y, & z 0days exist (even if you didn't
have access to them) with some level of certainty, then you probably have a
very valid method of at least quantifying exposure.  Heck, depending upon
the level of certainty, I would pay you as a service to help me quantify my
clients' exposures.
