"ten years-phase out of -300s and -500s" I doubt it; the 500s are fairly new aircraft, I believe you will see -300s and -500s in the fleet as long as you saw the -200s.

Well, the 737-700s are the long haulers for the fleet. They are beginning longer and longer routes; particularly from Las Vegas, Baltimore, and Phoenix--I can see the benefits. The -300s, -500s, and -200s do majority of the short haul flights anyway.
