Oh, okay, yes, switches certainly do still support port-based VLANs. As far as I can tell, they are still the most common way to get hosts onto a particular VLAN. Whether 802.1Q VLANs will eventually displace all port-based VLANs between hosts and switches, I'm not sure. It's possible. You'd have to start seeing VLAN IDs being provided via DHCP, for instance, or some other dynamic means, before hosts go in a big way to 802.1Q, I would think.
