Your reasoning about D stands, but you should also consider that "languages that could replace C" also includes Java and the common dynamic languages, for a lot of programs that shouldn't have been written in C in the first place.

    Point taken, but I was thinking of "languages that could replace C" in the sense of those that could replace what C can do, rather than what people do with C.

    For example, be the language of choice used to implement "Java and the common dynamic languages". I've a funny feeling that Java is written in C++, but the point holds.
