That seems unlikely. I cannot imagine anyone taking the view that
anonymous secure mail isn't needed. Without it we likely wouldn't have
the Snowden leaks. Without those I highly doubt there'd be such a
spirited discussion on this list about GPG (or at least its proponents
would have an easier time dismissing some critics as tinfoil hats).
There are plenty of projects working on usability right now, and that's
key. Let's just see how they do over the next year.
