Your comment was pure speculation and not based on any research. If Adobe is lying in this matter it will bite them in the ass. LR is a money maker for them.
LR competes in a different market than does the rest of CC. If they put it strictly in CC they lose to Aperture and other products. It makes no business sense.
My inquiries with Adobe make it pretty clear that when they say "indefinitely" they mean "we have no plans to change this in the next 12 months". That's their answer on the $10 price, and I have no reason to believe that they have longer plans.
Your point about business sense seems reasonable. Lightroom fills a different need and people who use it often dont need any of the other tools in the creative suite. However this is the same company that now forces print shops to subscribe to things like After Effects - so I'm not necessarily counting it out.
