Will SPMAGTF's revert to their traditional role?

We've seen SPMAGTF's become a standing force within the Marine Corps. It wasn't always that way.  I'll have to dig into my books but from memory SPMAGTF's were once Marine Air Ground Task Forces designed to fulfill a unique (special) task and were never meant to be a standing unit...historically.

Of course all that's changed.  So under the new Commandant will we see these units go away?

How does this formation that is aviation centric (although I do seem to recall an effort to get them aboard available ships of various types) fit going into the future?  Will Combatant Commanders fight the move?  I also recall stories about how they were "valued" by CC's worldwide.

Another question I can't wait to get an answer to!
