I know that for PS, at least, WotC is doing is exactly this - making PS more
accessible to the larger gaming audience. I believe that PS is basically
being absorbed into the Core line and any product that has planar content is
marked with the Lady of Pain symbol.

Perhaps, depending on the success of this idea, the same sort of thing could
well end up happening to the BR line?
