It's hardly unlikely they will be replacing RTs with 2s soon - they have lots of unsold inventory they'd like to get rid of, and I've pushed support for multiple times for annoying issues on the RT that are clearly related to the hardware design itself (or the slow Tegra 3 processor), but I'm on my 6th replacement and they still insist on replacing my RTs with RTs that are bound to fail with the same issue as soon as they arrive.
I'd say our warranties would run out prior to Microsoft running out of their RTs - you might get better luck if you live in the EU or China where there are 2-year warranties enforced by law, but otherwise, early adopters will soon be out of their luck.
