The other vendors' SAS/SATA aggregation technology is on its way.
Parallel SCSI is going to vanish from new hardware much more rapidly
than SATA is overtaking PATA.  I've seen this in the "pipe", as it were, 
which is why I hastened to create a SAS on Linux page for my
knowledgebase, to go with the SATA one of longstanding.

And yes, the upcoming SAS HBAs and enclosures definitely will accept
standard SATA nodes.

(Luckily, I'm in a position to sit out the messy transition.)
