If I want to be shooting M43 in five years I want to use the electronic shutter when I can. When the shutter goes on an old M43 body it might be done, unrepairable. If I can't replace it can I use the lenses for something other than paperweights and antique camera gear displays?

The Olympus E-5 is about the only Four Thirds camera that still has any significant value, so I suspect the E-M1.3 and E-M1X will have value for some time yet, but most of them are not going to be much more than paperweights.  The good news is don't worry about the shutter - a replacement body will be available on eBay.
