Umm, actually it has. (taken off that is, albeait slowly) Manitou still does, and Rock Shox makes a couple 160mm and 180mm fork that come in 1.5" and 1-1/8"..... and more frame companies are starting to use the 1.5" standard on some frames as well. I've heard/read a few rumors that Marzocchi will be doing so as well, even after they originally said no to the idea.
I'd say it's anything but dead, and neither of my bikes are 1.5". No vested interest in it.
edit: here ya go.
1.5-inch steerer on OEM Marzocchi 66 RC2X
If they are doing an OEM guinea pig fork with it this year, they'll probably release both option next year.
