As Uli points out the future is MORE compressed rather then uncompressed. There is nothing wrong with compression except for the processing power to do it.
As pointed out above the HVX200 is definately not uncompressed. DVCproHD is an older form of compression. It records 960x720@24p at 40Mbps where as HDV records 1280x720@24p at 19.7Mbps. HDV is a much newer and efficient compression, and is capturing higher resolution. This makes the two formats much closer than people give them credit. Certainly any look at quality HDV footage would erase all doubts.
As for HDV dying, I don't see it anytime soon. There is a large installed base of cams (more then all other HD cams combined!) All major software supports the format just as they support DV before it and always will. All of the major prosumer cam makers (Sony/JVC/Canon) make HDV cams except Panasonic. HDV uses the same tapes as DV befor it. The tapes will be available for the far forseable future.
