I would think the RJ-45 works really well and has been proven over the years. I would like to see an improvement in the reliability of the cheap connectors used on laptops, often these fail due to repeated connect/disconnects (after all, it is a portable). I have shied away from using wireless in favor of the hardwire connection in order to enjoy the higher speeds normally found with the cable. Perhaps, they could come up with a plug in replacement connector? Don't get me wrong, I would love a smaller form factor. The reduced footprint would be nice, but at the cost of needing multiple types of cables (small to small, small to large, etc.).

Is there a need for an RJ-45 replacement for reasons other than the cosmetic?

Yes, ethernet has found its way to TV. My new Samsung LCD TV already an ethernet jack to connect to my home router. This is for DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) standard. With this I can stream music/movies from my laptop without much hassle!

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
