Will Sony drop the A-mount?

The Alpha 3000 has just been released by Sony, and the following observations can be made:

1. Sony is now using the "Alpha" brand name for E-mount cameras.

2. In the 3-series camera segment (e.g. A37), the E-mount has already replaced the A-mount.

What do you think will happen next?

Sony will gradually introduce the E-mount as a replacement also for higher-end cameras, e.g. A5000 instead of A58, A7000 instead of A77, eventually A9000 instead of A99

A-mount and E-mount bodies will be available in parallel as long as Sony stays in the camera market

Hybrid bodies will emerge, which allow to use A- and E-mount lenses on the same body and without adapter
