I believe you underestimate the ingenuity of many device makers
It really wouldn't be all that hard to create a dock adaptor for their docking unit that simply raises the iPhone/iPod Touch a little higher while still fitting into the older device. I'll grant that most companies will be adapting the entire device to the new connector, but they're not going to flat abandon the old until the iPhone 4 and 4S are no longer sold. I expect dock-to-phone adaptors originally shifting to phone-to-dock adaptors later. BTW, I'm talking about adaptors by the docking-device manufacturers, not Apple's white adaptors which are already sold out even prior to the iPhone itself being released.
