Which not-so-popular protocol are you referring to here?

SIP?
Skype?
The protocol behind most Flash Players?
Jabber?

I think many of those are relatively popular and are unlikely to experience
this natural deselection of which you speak.

I think deprecation of IPv4 is going to happen simply because it will hit
several walls in terms of scaling and the cost of continuing to support it
will exceed the utility, but, this will have little to do with any particular
subset of IPv4 uses and more to do with the overall picture.
