I expect Apple to incorporate ACC into iTunes, definately. In the preferences I should be able to choose what format I want my media encoded to, MP3, ACC, etc. You already can do this to an extent.
Additionally, a batch convert tool that will convert my MP3s to ACC would be awesome, assuming it doesn't degrade the music any more than the original MP3 encoding did.
Basically, I want full ACC support in iTunes (with some ID tag equivalent) but I just don't want to re-rip all my CDs. Doing it once was enough. Although if I get better quality and smaller files, I might be tempted.
Then again, what about my Rio MP3 player? And what about all those iPod users... better add ACC support to the iPod while they're at it. Yum!
EDIT: On further thought, I doubt Apple would add full ACC support to iTunes unless they also added it to all the iPods. Otherwise they'll have to field tons of questions ala "Why don't my tunes sync and play on my iPod?!?!" Doh! I hope they're on top of it. Then again, the next iPod may be a full MPEG-4 media compliant device, with full A/V capabilities. Hmmm...
