"Obsolete" cameras: is it a serious concern?

My camera becomes obsolete when one of two things happens:

1. It breaks and is not repairable

2. My skills as a photographer exceed the capability of my camera

So far I have had #1 happen to me one time when the screen on my xz-2 cracked in half and it wasn't repairable and the camera was out of production.

and with regards to #2, I'll be dead long before that ever even comes close to happening

All kidding aside, regarding parts availability, it usually costs far more to fix an older camera then it would just to buy something more up-to-date.
