(I believe there is a class action lawsuit filed against SW Deckscapes currently in courts)
Is there a threat of these products becoming unavailable if the Ma and Pa's sink under the weight of the big boxes, and conglomerates?

very much so! The major paint companies (SW and PPG primarily) are not willing to invest in lo voc oil based technologies because of their belief that it is already too small of a market niche. Only the smaller paint manufacturers (California for example, of course! And specialist stain companies such as Armstrong and Clark) are willing to put the effort into oil/alkyd products, which basically means only the independent paint retailers will have their products. It will get much worse, to the point where it will be nearly impossible for most consumers to source voc compliant oil/alkyd based stains. But due to the massive marketing efforts of SW, Behr, PPG and the like, a vast majority of consumers will never be aware of the superiority of alkyd stains, which will further hasten their disappearance. It will start to snowball in a few years the way things are going. Very few independent paint retailers will survive the next 5 years orso.
