You and I have very different definitions of what 'out of date' means. I view that as meaning old fashioned or expired. 11sp is still being made and Shimano has said they plan to continue to make it.
In a short 12-15 years from now, Claris will be 11sp, but it wont matter because we will finally have the hoverboards from Back to the Future and thats all anyone will want to ride.
