1- Google decides to acomodate publisher's demands out of the goodness of their hearts. I seriously think we will get more tools eventually, but not as many as we would like. I would seriously enjoy going over detailed stats from my site just for my personal satisfaction.
2- A considerable number of publishers decide to leave the program and force Google through the force of market pressure to change its ways. I would not hold my breath for this to happen.
It is a matter of choice. I am willing to put up with reporting shortcomings in return for having my first check cover my hosting fees for a year. The fact is that for some of us that had advertising in our sites before the adsense program, advertising was sometimes more of something else to play with than a source of income. Adsense has changed that for many people.
Since I want to manage my business, and the one-sided Google AdSense TOS leaves those revenues in the hands of Google, I've elected to hold my AdSense ad income to a very small percent of my revenues. If they give me the boot, I'll still eat and go on with my life.
More revenue for me.
As long as the end CPM rates are higher than other stuff I can put in that space, I don't care what the revenue split is.
I have been round long enough not to look a gift horse in the mouth....
If Google added to the TOS that we had to wear pink Pyjamas then I would be first in the queue. I know that sounds sad but money is money...
Asense is the most fully customizable, non, flashing, unobtrusive, content improving highest CTR that I have seen in a long time. And when you write to them they answer back like you were human.

I didn't carry ads before AdSense, although I tried affiliate book links a few years back (with an extraordinarily low return on my time investment). If AdSense were to go away, I would remove ads until something comparable came along.
