Default SACD and DVD-Audio, Doomed Formats?

Well this should be a controversial thread hopefully. I'm contemplating jumping into high def digital and buying a universal DVD player that supports both these formats, but I'm reluctant as it appears that the industry is about to orphan these formats. Sony has abandoned SACD (surprise, surprise) with no support in their latest blu-ray player, and in general I'm concerned that these formats will die a slow, lingering death as the few companies that produce high-def digital recordings move to blu-ray or HD-DVD as the new high-def AV formats gain in popularity. Any opinions out there on this one?
