Seperating 4E from 3E?

(Let me know if this is off-topic or whatever, it can be deleted, just thought it might be worth discussion.)

Since there's now a dnd4e community, is it likely/possible that all 4E content would be shifted over there?

IMHO, I have no interest in hearing reviews and gossip about the new 4E products every time a new one comes out over the next several months, or all the rules questions that are bound to come with it. I don't plan on buying any of the new WOTC products in the foreseeable future, so it's not something I'm involved in. However, I'm very interested in the new 3.x products that are coming out from third-party publishers, as well as the usual 3.x rules questions that pop up around here.

I can see the relation between 3.0 and 3.5 stuff being posted in the same place, since a great amount of it was directly translatable, and someone that had only ever played 3.0 could still understand what was going on in 3.5. From what I can tell, though, 4E is greatly different so I would think separating the two would be good.

Anyone have any opinions? Would this kill community activity? Is it just a silly thing to differentiate?
