Telescopes Larger Then the TMT Planned

Just noticed that they are already planning larger telescopes then the Thirty Meter Telescope planned here in Hawaii.

The European Organization for Astronomical Research in the Southern Hemisphere (ESO) is thinking even bigger. It is expecting to start building a 40-m telescope called the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) in three years’ time, and has a 60 to 100-m telescope known as the Overwhelmingly Large Telescope (OWL) in the pipeline.

So I gotta ask… Is our Hawaii one planned for 30 Meters just gonna be a waste when there are larger projects in the works?
