JKR also said something in a recent interview about not wanting to have other people write additional HP stories after she has finished and the best way to do that was bump off Harry. I think it is really up for grabs about who dies. Also with so many questions created by the last book - ie did Dumbledore die? Are Draco and Snape baddies or goodies? What are the other horcruxes? It is so exciting!!
