That last line of your post is the paradigm of wishful thinking ..;)
Alas, chipless first generation Pixmas, when we were able to reset the counter just clicking the front buttons, is the lost paradise of Canon users,

I’m not looking forward to new models. They will be expensive, unfriendly to refill and, image quality wise, almost the same.
Nowadays the Pro1000 requires already expensive single use chips to work. You bet that the new generation will be refill proof in practical terms.
Even if they made a Pro version of G series, refillable directly from bottles, probably each OEM ink bottle would have a different serial number that couldn’t be reused.

A kind of start is done by Epson with the T3100x - an Ecotank large format 24 inch printer - only with 4 inks and not directly comparable to the Pro10s, P1000 etc , but Epson nevertheless is moving into the larger format printer range with the Ecotank configuration starting at the low performance end.

The ink bottle serialization didn't work at all when Epson started with the L100 Ecotank printer about 10 years ago in the Far East, soon listings with serial numbers were published on the internet you could use to activate the next refill . Some ink bottles e..g the 673 for the L805 still come with serial numbers printed on the labels but the firmware does not support that anymore.

As discussed everywhere on photo forums, the advanced amateur who buys expensive cameras and lenses and prints at home is slowly disappearing.
How the manufacturers will react - raising prices to recoup their costs on a diminishing number of clients - or proposing better products for the same or lower price to gain on the competition - still has to be seen.
