IIRC some of the next generation SSDs based on phase-change memory and some other things don't require any of this madness.
Samsung is doing phase-change memory at scale now. The capacity is smaller than we'd like, but it's actually here and in production finally.
(To be fair write cycles on PCM aren't infinite, but at 100mil cycles and writes on the bit level instead of the block level, PCM is a good deal that likely to make SSDs less annoying in the future. PCM isn't the only type of new SSD that's coming out with this stuff.)
