Old Cato...

So I misread badly.
I interpreted you conclusion as:
Step 1. .065um-.045um
Get rid of "excessive superscalarity" i.e. don't replicate identical functional units.
Step 2. .045um and down
Get rid of superscalarity, but not necesserily of dataflow OOE stuff and registers renaming.

Both steps make ISA less relevant than ever.
