Dark Eldar are officially 'The Least Popular Race' not including chapter approved lists, but they currently have a perfectly working codex, so GW cant really abolish them as long as people continue to use the rules. And besides, they wont, cos the DE are actually pretty damn cool.
it would be very, very silly of gw to get rid of dark eldar. the worst thing that is likely to happen (imo) is that they are demoted from to codex force to a chapter approved. i really wouldnt worry about it though.
Dark Eldar are still kicking, and are going to continue to kick through 4th edition at least. They're not getting downgraded to a Chapter Approved list, nor are they sharing space with the Eldar in a combined codex, nor are they being dropped.
