So if money was the reason you never gave a 4k before, this might open a lot of doors.
8k is tapping on the door ...
I lost a very nice Bolex with SOM Berthiot Lens at eBay today.

In the 80's banking went through disintermediation; and brokerage houses started being banks and vice versa.
It's what is happening now.
A fancy term for cutting out the middle man.
4K (and soon 8K ) are in the hands of movie folks now. Editing with VFX and other nuances are fingertip items.

Probably, but not as much and at a higher price.

And some content may simply be an embedded feature to sell hardware a la U2 and the iPhone.
