Eh, wouldn't worry too much about that. Swiftech will release new mounting systems if they change, and considering how long intel/AMD have had their mainstream chips be somewhat compatible with new cooling solutions...it's not too much an issue.
However, I don't know if the pump would last a decade. It's one of the better pumps for reliability, but it's rated for 60,000 hours, probably will last 6-7 years, but the warranty only promises it for 3.
