Will NEVER happen.
There will always be someone that comes up with a better 'standard' in their opinion. Evolution.
Whether it is better or not in the real world with real people.
Agree with all of your other comments re discs though.
Always progressing technology- but there needs to become a "standard" frame mount, through axel size, so that wheels and frames are not outdated year to year. QR with Hydro brakes can be great, but I believe through axles line up more accurately more of the time, and I think serve their function better in this situation. Companies are very concerned about weight and I believe that is the main impetus to continue QR for hydro brakes.
Anyway I decided my lottery winning bike purchase would be a Pinnarelo Dogma F8/ Mavic Ksyrium Pro SL wheels/ Di2 9100 DuraAce
