The future of China-Taiwan relations

Is Taiwan so economically tied to China that unification is imminent? Or has its new identity become so ingrained that de jure independence is only a matter of time?

A sudden move by China (military attack) or Taiwan (declaration of independence) remains unlikely, partly because of the crucial role the U.S. plays in maintaining the status quo.
