Why on earth do people have to "trash" their 360s if they buy the next console? If they are heavily invested in the 360 then they keep their 360. Having to have a second console hooked up is far removed from trashing it.
Fictionvision: I see Microsoft having to do something as I don't see people just trashing all the 360 purchases they made over the last several years, especially ones on xbox live.
I would be utterly shocked if MS or sony makes even the slightest attempt at backward compatibility this time around. I would be happy for them to prove me wrong, but they have already proven they can cut that corner without meaningful consequence.
