Just like when ODI cricket began this games places will show its on values to the game. Anderson didn't pitch on to the stumps, hit the right area and went straight to the keeper. Dismissing this game as something different which will harm the game sounds just like what was originally thought of ODI cricket.
The standards themselves I feel will not lower as they are different standards entirely. If your of the idea that this game is the death of test cricket than I can understand that train of thought, but so many players are good across all levels that I can't believe that. Any player who can play an aggressive stroke off of any ball has the potential to be a good batsman.
This game will develop ODI cricket IMO. Bowling, Fielding, Batting, the aggressive nature of this game will roll over into the slightly longer format. Test cricket? The verdicts out.
If your favourite games the longest one then maybe there are dark days ahead. A long innings and defensive strokes may begin to decline. I don't think so myself, I believe these games will be kept well and truely seperate for a long time to come.
