Well, that's just people taking concepts too bloody far, they don't want to cut off a good thing, I don't think HBO really has to worry about that, the second anyone hears that GoT is going into its' last season, HBO will be flooded with high-quality replacement concepts.  In fact, since they know the show has a built-in expiration, they're probably planning ahead.  The thing about X-Files is they didn't have a viable replacement series... and TV was a totally different beast in those days as well.  And let's not forget that the X-Files mythology was made up on the fly.  I think that TV, particularly HBO, is aware of the danger of diluting their brand quality by drawing a show out.  I think that might be another strength of the short season, since they don't show GoT every week all year, they're not as dependent on it individually (I think British TV has the same strength).
