Why not have both?
An Android tablet that also has Chrome OS on it.
You plug the tablet into a dock and you have a complete operating system more suited to a desktop environment.

People are already doing it with Ubuntu, this way you get it all from a single source so have the potential for better integration.

I would love to see this on the new google tablet when it arrives.

You are correct that it states "a reasonable amount of time" and the interpretation of a reasonable amount of time is left up to the interested parties to decide.
The argument that PC hardware is reasonably expected to last a minimum of 3 years is easy to establish however as that is the time period that all companies I have ever worked at have used as the depreciation period.

I would say it is reasonable to expect things like Televisions, Washing Machines, Dishwashers etc to last a minimum of 5 years.
