That's been said about so many things, from various legacy OSes to other protocols such as SNA and SMB/CIFS.  

None of those things are as prevalent as IPv4 is today.  And yet, they're still around to haunt us.

I think we're going to be dealing with IPv4 for a long, long time - far longer than two years.
