Simply put, the fact that Unchained is happening at all is proof that there is plenty of room for "Pathfinder: Revised" or whatever.
It's just also proof that Paizo is fully aware that people are fickle and will be scared away by "branding A" but feel totally safe with the same product using "branding B."
"A new edition? NO THANK YOU! Definitely not interested in change! I've invested too much already!"
"A ton of revisions, but still the same old PFRPG? I'm okay with that, even though there's functionally no difference between this option and the other one that I totally shot down earlier, other than this option will take multiple releases to get to the same point that a single new edition release would offer."
:eyeroll smiley here:
Personally, I don't care which route Paizo thinks is best. All I know is that there is a TON of stuff cluttering up the rules (much of it relics from 3.5, but some of it born from trying to convert from 3.5 and falling short of the mark) that needs to be cleaned up.
Unchained is a great start. But that's all it is - a start.
