I think that "waiting out" is a good option... however... Google is changing like stated before.
It is not the new layout only: they stuff the index more and more with localized results, realtime results, video's, images and not to forget: adwords adwords anddddd adwords.
So... what will be left of the top 10 results as we have known for years? Nothing!
You can wait things out and hope for the better (which is maybe a good plan in some respects) or you can get yourself together and get yourself advertised in different ways.
