I hope they never change the core rules enough to warrant a 2.0 version. The choice is up to the GM and groups to decide which Paizo or 3pp products to use for campaigns. If I want to play a different rule system there are other companies with excellent rules out there. The Star Wars RPG and the Warhammer 40k RPGS from Fantasy Flight comes immediately to mind.
After watching Forgotten Realms get constantly destroyed/remade and Games Workshop destroying Warhammer last year I do not ever want to see that happening to Golarion. The only change I wish they would reveal is either how Aroden was killed or actually bring him back into the books and lore.
Put me in a group that is diametrically opposed to this theory. The game rules define the setting. You can make minor tweaks, but radically changing the game rules radically changes the feel of the game, and that completely changes the setting.
