That will certainly happen and was also announced years ago in the 
"Berlin Manifesto". TYPO3 will continue to be developed when [some new 
name] is released. How long this will continue nobody knows. This really 
depends on the number of developers who still want to develop it and how 
many customers/user still want it after some time.

Search online for TYPO3 v5 and you'll find more than 150.000 pages. How 
confusing will that be for those unfamiliar with TYPO3 if they install 
5.0 and search for a solution for their problem. All they find is 
information about concepts for [some new name]...

It might be suboptimal, but at least not as confusing as unrelated 
information in web searches.
