Disk will be obsolete before it wears out

You are probably right about not being too concerned, but, of course when the drive fills up gradually the calculations is not correct anymore. The drive can do wear-leveling on a ever shrinking part of the SSD (say 60 GB of a 120GB drive).

Physical block allocation is not exposed to the OS, so the drive is free to swap contents of blocks in order to start saving to newest ones (although I'm not sure if OCZ controllers are smart enough to do that).
