Computer science publication culture: where to go from here?

I have written a blog for ACM SIGMOD on the computer science publication culture. The blog is here. My main thesis is that  in the long run, we will follow other science and engineering disciplines and start treating journals as the main outlet for disseminating our research results. I outline some of the steps that we can take in getting there from where we are today. I would love to hear of opinions either here or at the ACM blog.
