There is also the possibility that they abandon LR altogether and that LR5 is the last version they ever make.

That one isn't.  LR6 will happen.

If they are to be believed that LR is the enthusiast program then some confirmation that they intend to keep LR as a stand-alone version for the foreseeable future would buoy my confidence.  I search and could not find such a confirmation, which in my mind suggests that either

a) they don't understand their customer's concerns over the CC license

b) they haven't made up their mind yet and LR6 could be CC only


There are no indications that it will, but it's far enough ahead that they could alter plans.  I suspect that the backlash from this debacle has largely quenched that possibility.
