If that proves to be the case, can Kodak (and Fuji) provide enough raw  
stock to keep up with demand?

Is film stock production being ramped up as Pilot season begins and  
shooting for the new season looms?

Will there be enough transfer systems, colorists and engineers to jump  
in and handle what's shot?

Will there be enough D5 equipment to go around?

Someone asked on another list today about sourcing HDCAM and HDCAM SR  
heads. Tony Korte from head rebuilder Video Magnetics advises Sony was  
the sole source.  With D5HD making a resurgence, sourcing heads might  
be an issue.

This promises to be an interesting NAB.
