Actually, technically speaking DisplayPort will eventually be the new standard; for PC monitors at least. Functionally it's extremely similar to HDMI, and I guess its big selling point is that it's royalty-free, unlike HDMI. In any case, DisplayPort seems to be having a pretty slow adoption rate, only now appearing on cards like the Radeon 4890 battlestation edition, and panels like the Dell 2408WFP. I don't think you'll need to worry about a major video standards change, for the PC at least. DVI will probably be around for a long time still.
