That's already happened too.
Electronic Shifting (or Hydraulic) - Why?
Like William Gibson said
"The future is here now- its just unevenly distributed"
I can only see downsides (heavier, more expensive, reliability, limited lifespan, needs charging), so why is it "better"?
I would love a hydraulic set-up. Pretty much all of the disadvantages you mentioned (other than more expensive) no longer apply to hydraulic brakes compared to cables.
I'm not sure about electronic though. I'm generally useless with electronic anything and value reliability, I like being able to fix emchanical/hydaulic things rather than simply chuck them away as with computers.
