You're assuming that BR movies will be single layer when that's not fully settled yet.
Beyond that- we can expect to see a lot of re-releases down the road from both camps
for a multitude of reasons. For starters, we won't be seeing much if any use of iHD and BD-J interactivity in releases this year, most releases are lacking in special features and audio options, and, in the case of H.264, the encoding process is likely to be much refined a year from now compared to where it is right now- as it was with early DVD releases, there will probably have to be re-issues of many of the early titles due to technological advance.
I don't see why that principle applies to one camp more than the other.
