We're already seeing ways to get convincingly good shallow DOF effects without needing large, heavy, and altogether encumbering fast glass.

No we're not. Not if you look at photos at sizes any bigger than a 3x5 print or web resolutions

And the organizations driving computational photography seem to have no interest in applying it to standalone cameras

I think the issue is that those who choose to use bigger cameras are likely not as interested in computational photography as those that shoot with smartphones.

Noise reduction will be a real challenge.  Computational photography will be able to provide a clean and noise free low light image, however, the computed details may not match those that were present in real life.
