I used to say the same thing, but unfortunately it's not so clear cut. The intel drives which post such great random i/o numbers only do this because they are configured in write back cache mode w/volatile cache. The x25-M in write through mode can post about 50iops writing -- I'm not kidding. Also, wear&tear on the drive is much higher. IOW, the intel controller does not perform magic -- they cheated.
The x25-e drive is configured the same way -- the performance drop for going to write-through is not so high (you can eek 1000ish iops out of a drive) but the drives are expensive and the the math doesn't work out all that well. The basic problem is that flash is plain and simply lousy at random writing just like hard drives.
With a small NV cache on the drive, things could be completely different (and some boutique mfg IIRC already offer this) but until you see Intel, Seagate, or WD on a drive with NV guarantee for at least semi-reasonable price you will not see serious intrusion into the enterprise.
