Scary
Something has to change, or its going to be very scary world where your commode, refrigerator, front door lock, thermostat, toaster, egg holder and everything else is on the 'net.  There will be change, but it looks like it will come too late to unify the IoT.

Our Things
Appreciated reading your perspective. One of the interesting points you raise is how many devices will eventually be working on our behalf.  Not only do we have a hard time now keeping track of all our accounts, but what about all the digital sensors working on our behalf -- some we think about, others we don't -- in our homes, our cars, at work, in transit. And that's not to mention all the things that will monitor us.
