When Will Roman Numerals for Superbowls Cease?

If my team, the Steelers, make it to Super Bowl XLV, it will be their VIIIth appearance.  It could be, then, their VIIth victory.

Next year's Super Bowl is XLVI, followed by XLVII, and XLVIII. Then it's Super Bowl XLIX and Super Bowl L.

If it isn't already, the use of Roman numerals for Super Bowls is getting out of hand.  Those out years with XLIX and L are ridiculous.

Isn't it time to just call this next one Super Bowl 45 and start using numeric digits to number the games from here on out?

I say yes.  It's at least XXX or XL years over due.
