Does LR have the capability of exporting out all your images, edits and metadata in some kind of format other programs can use such that if you were forced to move to another program you wouldn't lose a decade of work?

Sort of.  It can export out all of its edit recipes and metadata, but not flags, VCs, collection information and a few other things.  Further, those edit recipes are only compatible if given to the same "cook", i.e. Camera Raw or Lightroom, so they aren't that useful if you switch to another editing program.  You could, of course, export finished images in JPEG or TIFF format, which is the only real way to preserve exact pixel values in final images.
