Is a software SIM coming - from Apple?

In my eyes more interesting than an iPad Air that is thinner and faster and all that - Apple's announcement of a software SIM where you can switch carriers on the go for best reception and data plans. Although the article states that the physical hardware SIM is too attractive to be severly threatened now - with subsidies for phones - for the future, this could be the end of the few remaining dreams of carriers to more than just a utility, a connectivity supplier. once i can quickly switch to any offer made to me in real time by any network provider, you will see that once connectivity is given, price will be the only thing that really matters. For carriers, this will mean that cost leadership will be essential.
