I see that Colnago has brought out a roadie with disc brakes. Verrrry interested to see how/when this is adopted by the pros.

Hasn't happened yet, nor will it in the next 3-5 years. I liken adding discs to sub 1 kilo frames and forks to the first bicycle with true rear derailleurs. For wet, mucky, touring, cross, tandems, great idea. For that 15 pound weekend warrior tool, an answer to a not asked question but like road tubeless, gonna happen, whether it's a good idea or not. Redesigned forks, frames, hubs(gonna be 135 rear, I'll bet), calipers, rotors, rims...blah+.

OBTW-I have a disc now, 622mm, using a Campagnolo rubber compound as disc material, and  small, aluminum  calipers.
