Midi 2.0 easier audio over midi? Audio interfaces no longer a requirement?

With midi 2.0 beginning to see some releases (eg the new roland keyboard) does anyone know if the spec allows for easier audio over midi?

Could we forsee a time where all new synths could simply plug into a computer by usb and transmit their audio directly over midi?

Is this a fantasy?
