most phones are essentially worthless after ~2 years
I think this is largely an illusion. I have an HTC Desire (running CM7) that I bought nearly 2 years ago and it is still a very good phone. I have no intention whatsoever of replacing it anytime soon. I'm looking forward to seeing whether there will be a version of CM9 for it.
People tend to replace their phones every 2 years because their contract is up and they can conveniently get a newer phone. In this sense, a two-year-old phone may be »worthless« in an economic sense in that the mobile ISP has written it off, but it is not necessarily »worthless« from a technical point of view (such that it would not be worth supporting by something like CM).
