I wouldn't make any decisions before I try the package. FCP 7 will cover my needs for "years to come" and if FCPX is a fail-boat there are a lot of options out there.

Features that sound perfect for me:
- 64 bit
- Unlimited menory
- Uses Open CLI and Grand Central Dispatch
- Color fully managed with ColorSync
- Resolution independent playback system up to 4K
- Mix & match all content in timeline without transcoding
- No rendering, it does it in the background using every available CPU cycle
- Can plug into cameras and edit whilst ingesting
- Non destructive color balance on ingest
- Stabilisation on ingest
- Audio cleanup on ingest
- People and shot detection
- Range based keywording - metadata attached to part of a clip
- Smart collections - like smart folders
- Clip connections, primary and secondary media locking together
- Magnetic timeline -moves audio out of the way to avoid collisions.
- Single keystroke nesting
- Compound clips - collapse clips into a single clip
- Inline precision editor - simplifies trimming of clips
- Auditioning - sampling of different versions of edits
- 'Skimming' media previews when you move the cursor over
- Timeline Index- an index of all the clips in the timeline
- Automatic control of number of tracks - add and go when needed
- Sync clips with Plural Eyes style featue (Not Plural Eyes)
- Pitch corrected audio skimming
- Waveforms show levels in realtime
- Retiming in the timeline
- One click to match color between clips
- New advanced color correction
- Improved keyframing, bezier paths and curve display in the timeline
- Color & Soundtrack now in FCPX

Features that make me.. worry:
- iMovie like filmstrip view
- Color & Soundtrack now in FCPX
- Automatic control of number of tracks - add and go when needed
- Smart collections - like smart folders

It all boils down to HOW they've integrated new features in conjunction with keeping what people used in the past. GUI / Eco-system (i.e. i/o options) is really important. Multiple timeline support is important. But it's too early to say. And like other posters have commented I think Apple is prematurly seeding select info to prove "it's not another Copeland, FCP lives in FCPX and it will be awesome!".

Let's hope it is.
