Is VHF going to be permanently replaced by UHF for amateur packet?

Since the power plug outlet that was used by the Kenwood D700 has apparently been trumped by the air purifier, is there a possiblilty that packet will be permanently shifted from the original 145.825 VHF to UHF? That might disrupt a lot of amateurs' ability to work the ISS digipeater, including my own.
