I completely agree any1. As scaling slows, or as only the 'few' deep pockets can afford it, the rest of the industry will need other options to make faster, better, & cheaper devices. 3D could be one of those affordable options. Monolithic 3D might be a good solution for many products. See http://www.monolithic3d.com/2/post/2011/03/guest-contribution-entanglement-squared-by-zvi-or-bach.html

I bet EUV would love to switch its remaining challenges with nanoimprint or even maskless. Both have far fewer hurdles to cover - none of which require severe negotiations with Mother Nature.

The lack of an affordable NGL technology means that the era of "more than Moore" will be thrust upon the vast majority of the semiconductor industry in the forseeable future as scaling slows.

Absence of "cost-savior" sudden improvement EUV and other NGLs has still kept the leading edge players at the leading edge with the help of the ever-increasing wall of costly litho.
