If I were to guess, I'd say that they will continue to be in an Appendix.
That's because, like those here who think LRFD is a tool of the devil, the
old timers won't want to change-even though the ASCE 7 load combinations are
so much more comprehensive and rational, and easy enough to incorporate with
design software.

But as long as they're in the Code, I'll use them as the godsend they are.
