I agree it certainly doesn't sound ideal primarily for this reason. It's a long way off at the moment, we've got Haswell to get through first in 2013/14. After that we might have some more information about what Intel plan to do with Broadwell. We'll have to see what they offer - perhaps the CPU product range will be simplified, who knows. Chances are the mobo manufacturers will put the "performance" CPU onto their higher end boards but they may offer the same board with various CPUs.. It's all guesswork at the moment. We shouldn't worry about any of this at the moment, lets get our teeth into Haswell first and enjoy that.Problem is, how will they fit those than. Not everyone needs a fast CPU, but does need a lot of sata ports/pcie ports.
Broadwell is the die shrink of Haswell... If it's anything like Sandy Bridge -> Ivy Bridge, you may end up skipping Broadwell entirely. The article also mentions that the successor Sky Lake will revert back to the socket system too.
