why do you think that? As soon as the new II models are available prices will sink more. Probably in the $700-$750 price range.
It's just an economic fact.

+1 it has to go down more. When you see camera like Sony Nex5N which uses the same sensor and provides excellent IQ with superb video capabilities goes for $419 brand new with the kit lens - of course the Nex5N is no DSLR, no WR, etc..., that's the indicator that the K5 will soon hit the $650 mark, else it won't sell.

Because theory is a wonderful thing, however data kill theories every day. In the past, and the past is the best predictor of the future, the price of the older model has rebounded and gone up, NOT down, following the release of the successor camera in the Pentax dSLR line. Liking it, theories, etc. have no relevance to the issue whatsoever.

Plus the stocks are getting thinner and thinner, so supply won't last forever.
