I know this isn't the theme of the article, Brian, but one can avoid--or at least postpone for a couple generations--many of these challenges by moving to FD-SOI at 28nm or 14nm. FD-SOI is Faster, Cooler, and Simpler than alternate processes and, because it is planar, doesn't require the different design and processing that FinFETs need.
