From where I sit, I think the core aspects of MMOGs are pretty much set. Grind XP, Get Loot, Some kind of endgame like PVP and/or Raiding. I don't think thats going to change. They will get refined, but essentially if you don't like XP grinding with friends or strangers and spending lots of your time online, this is not the genre for you.

If this premise is correct, then yes this genre is not for me.  Fortunately, I think UO didn't really fit this meta-archetype so I'll continue to hold out hope. Further, this genre is capable of so much more than the above that, well, what a horribly shallow and unfortunate such an eulogy it would make if your prediction proved accurate.

UO had grinding, probably more than any other game because of the repetitive clicking for everything. Although ability to macro got around actually partipating in the grind. UO had an end game too which was basically socializing and pvp. UO also was about loot, collecting, hording, and creating.

According to a Blizzard employee who made a post in this thread here, the World of Warcraft beta will last for at least another 5+ months.  I'm not sure what I'm going to be playing now in my free time for the next five months.  Perhaps I'll check out City of Heroes via the pre-order beta and see what that is like.

I suppose it's all for the best anyway.  I would like as nice a release as possible, and I'm sure Blizzard doesn't want to mess up their nice and shiny track record of smooth releases.
