The time has come, Gartner just ranked MSFT as the #1 BI stack, end-to-end! As a very recent MCITP: in BI where do I go now? Wait for SQL Server 2008? Why! I'm not certified as a BI Architect!
For the time being, I have submitted a SQL Server 2008 Connect Suggestion on this at https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/ViewFeedback.aspx?FeedbackID=327537

BI is on every CIO's 'wish list', more and more professionals are entering the space, and the market has consolidated considerably.
