Unfortunately, it'll probably just lead to a new version that obsoletes everything we now own to cope with the old system.

Hadn't thought of that option but you're probably right.

But would it ever lead to devices that do so legally?  Or that address the issues related to many commercial applications (e.g. multiple destinations, switching a source/destination combination affecting other source/destinations combinations, etc.)?

I saw one of two possibilities that could be helpful.. either someone comes up with a box that strips the content protection. allowing us to split, route, or do whatever we want with the signal (which is legal as long as we're not copying it)
or, the availability of such boxes forces them to revamp the standard and maybe it comes out better next time..

I'm not sure about the legality, apparently the courts have found that anything that varies much at all from a standard residential system configuration being installed in a commercial establishment constitutes 'rebroadcast' and requires associated licensing, so there seems to be some precedent that bypassing any rights protection to support such distribution could be an issue.  But that's for the courts and attorneys to determine.
