I am sure that the MCSD program will get a major re-make to emphasize .NET. You can already get a MCP+Site Building credential from Microsoft, and they may or may not update that to include new exams like 70-230 (Biztalk Server EE). One way or another, though, I agree with you that it's just a matter of time before some of these new technologies get their own certifications, or become part of an existing certification. Reading Microsoft's mind can be kind of tricky, so I will just say it is highly likely that this will happen in the next 12 months.
