Sure, but BD players also address the DVD market.
Whether or not BD has peaked against DVD and/or peaked overall you have to separate these things.
BD-UHD being dead doesn't imply BD is dead.
BD being 40-50% of the optical disc market does not imply BD players are 40-50% of the optical disc player market.

If anything triple purpose (DVD, BD, games) is Sony's best chance to get someone to buy a BD player, which is definitely a good thing for them considering they make more money per BD sold than per stream view. To keep selling a console with a built in ODD is beneficial to them.
For Microsoft it's reversed. They don't care about BD sales. They want to maximize the number of consoles so if the price drop enabled by remove the ODD leads to more consoles sold they'll do it. In fact they did and Sony didn't. Will anything change drastically until 2020 so that it would be better for Sony to drop it completely like you suggest? If not then I don't see why they would.
