Two ways to look at it. 1)As tech improves across the board, what is considered "acceptable" will continue to slide towards the low end. Eventually a P&S will be capable of what a 5DIII can do today. 2)There will always be consumers who like to have the best products available. Those people will always buy the most high end they can afford, such as FF.

If we assum both points are true, it is likely smaller formats will steal some market share, but only to a point. How far that trend will go is unpredictable, but considering how many techies are spending money I dont think DSLRs will ever fade away.
