It might be that in 100 years the manipulation of genetic material will be so common and accepted that people will wonder why there should ever have been any reservations about it. But it might also be that in 100 years some "unintended consequences" suffered by the descendants of the genetically altered individuals created today will be such that people will wonder why on earth more caution was not exercised back then.

I think even in 100 years the manipulation of genetic material will be so common and accepted, we still need to reserve them for emengercy. I are also very glad that there are so many scientist are studying that and have published so many patents on that.
