Yes, but it's just intel's suggestion and wish but other motherboard manufacturers and UEFI writers can provide CSM far longer. Even Coreboot/SeaBIOS has an option to build as an UEFI module so it's ready now. Much worse will be when intel would decide to remove x86 realmode or some fundmental HW legacy stuffs like PIC/APIC/DMA/timers... As UEFI starts in 64b long mode there's no much reasons for realmode...
