Lets face it, at the ultra high end, sponsored pro level, the riders don't care about durability (as long as it performs to the end of the day). These guys don't pay for this stuff either. We consumers then salavate over it and it builds brand image.
Maybe only super record will ever have 11 speed, and maybe it will only be avaliable in very limited volumes outside of sponsored riders.
I don't mind that my Campy 10spd shifters are going to look out of date next year, I'm just grumpy that I'll eventually have to upgrade to 11spd at some stage as history shows it will trickle down through the lower groupsets pretty quickly.
