Really? Is this all fantasy or speculation? Can you quote or link to even single fact that supports this conclusion? Because without such facts that we can all read, I have trouble believing it.
Adobe rarely if ever lets people in on its future plans until the plans are announced.
I heard of a survey this week. I got another survey three weeks ago. And so on. They do surveys all the time - don't read anything into one.
That was basically the survey, all hypothetical questions from Adobe, in the form of what if we implemented this plan?
How likely would be to subscribe? etc...

They basically presented me with two plans:
plan X, Lightroom, no Photoshop for $9.99
Plan Y, Lightroom and Photoshop for $19.99
Hence my concern that the current plan might go away.
