A Word About DC Events: Especially Brightest Day (and Darknest Night)

Yep, I've been following the forums and boards, catching every tidbit of information concerning DC Comics and their Blackest Night - Brightest Day event.

I think someone nailed it when they said that DC is in the process of streamlining their heroes. Think about it:

Final Crisis - Removing all the unwanted "gaps" in storylines within the DC comic multiverse...killing off heroes.

Blackest Day - A revamp of Green Lantern and the Corps.
Brightest Day - A revamp of Aquaman, Hawkman/Hawkgirl, Firestorm, and Martian Manhunter
Flashpoint - An upcoming revamp of The Flash?

The only concern I have with all the world-wide, universal change is that it feels like we're living in an accordian. I don't necessarily disagree with it; I understand it. But at the same time, I'm wondering if -- later on down the road -- we'll be seeing the stories get pulled apart, revealing more gaps...only to need another round of "closing the gap" events.
