Yeah... it seemed like a safe bet. That’s why I doubled down with Boost! . It isn’t that I can’t think of lots of non-44||56 frames.  My optimism stems from the fact more companies are moving towards it than away. In addition to my examples of Rocky Mountain and Niner ditching drop-in bearing headsets there are even lots of steel HT frames (Kona, Chromag,...) going to tapered head tubes instead of 44mm.  The new Santa Cruz Chameleon is the only mountain bike frame I can think of for the ‘17/‘18 model year that makes the (surprising) choice of moving to a drop-in bearing headset where they have been using headset cups forever.
