Cool! Thank you.
I didn't even realize wblock would do that.
How is wblock doing that?

Word to the wise: Set all viewports and all spaces (i.e. model-space, paper-space) to the World Coordinate System (WCS) before using the WBlock cleaning technique (or -ExportToAutoCAD) lest some drawings go wharrgarbl.
Quick test in 2017 & viewports remain unchanged in paperspace so long as the wblock is done from modelspace & set to world.

Same. Only works from model. Pretty cool.
