I have considered what if Gmail follows suit and plan to ask Google about just that question.  They made me a top contributor a few months ago so hopefully I can get an answer.  However, in general my interactions with Google on mail flow and RFCs has always been good and make sense.  Plus they have paying customers so I think a change would need to be communicated far better than Yahoo's somewhat out of the blue change.  

Beyond that, my guess is that this  may ultimately be a stopgap measure to buy time for mailing lists to change.  I know the recent mailman Release Candidate added dmarc policy settings just because of this issue.  

In fact, I am still not sure this is a bad thing.  It was the lack of notice that really took a lot of people by surprise.  Perhaps no one predicted how bad this would affect lists?
