Remarkable what a parochial lot we are in the UK, when we complain about a camera body and it's light performance we always seem to forget that there's a whole world out there where a camera is supposed to perform well. It's true that the UK is a particularly dull and dank place, Manchester is the wettest city in Europe and frequently under a blanket of cloud, but most places in the world have much better light levels and high Iso performance just isn't an issue.
As for full frame having had it's time I think you're wrong! At the moment we're stuck with that as lenses can't strectch to anything bigger, but just look at the Leica S2. As yields increase and it becomes possible to produce FF sensors more cheaply then you'll perhaps see more affordable camera bodies.
FF has it's advantages over crop frame - and it's disadvantages, it's up to the photographer to make a choice as to what is best for them, but I certainly think your 'reports of the death of FF are greatly exagerated'
