Are Expeditionary Transfer Dock without a mission with the New Missile Marine Corps?

Question.  What is the mission of these ships with the New Missile Marine Corps?  Do you remember when the Marine Corps was all about seabasing? Demands were made to the Navy that we needed these ships so that we could launch from 200 miles from shore.  Now?  Now the new guys are demanding smaller amphibs that can "operate within contested areas" (as if slow moving amphibs won't be easily targeted and destroyed before they can land their cargo).

But I digress.

What happens to these ships now?
