Yes, that's the plan. 

The trick is to accommodate users of legacy devices (which prove to be
remarkably persistent within the userbase) while avoiding the trap of
having to maintain a number of completely separate disk interface
protocols within the operating system. 

I'm not sure you'll ever see SAS for the price of SATA, but you will
eventually see an operating system that doesn't care what is on the
other end of the data cable.
