We are currently not worried at all about this feature being removed
from Erlang.

Also, we can choose which versions of Erlang to support and so even if
parameterized modules were removed (which is very unlikely anytime
soon) this would only break Riak if we moved to a version of Erlang
with that change.

If it worries you personally, you should free free to ask on the
erlang-questions list directly as the core developers from Ericsson
are on that list.
