Could Intel really kill off CPU upgrades?

Do people still seriously upgrade just their CPU these days, I've built my last 4 PC's and have never seen the financial sense of upgrading just the CPU without a new motherboard etc. The performance gain from just a new CPU using the existing architecture never seems enough to justify the cost, technology seems to move so fast that even a year or 2 down the road it's more cost effective to upgrade the bare essentials to new architecture than just the CPU.
