$6K for a 4K projector in a couple of years? I think that's very possible. Process technology moves very fast - - think back two years ago and I do not believe there was anything close to the BenQ W1070 or W1080ST offering - - in price, features and performance.
A bigger issue to me is 4K content - - I do not see a lot of investment by major carriers to increase the "pipe" or bandwidth to everyone's home - - so the improvement will have to be in compression algorithms - - which is happening as we speak.
I betcha that within five years (which should be the lifespan of a good projector?) - - you'll see under $5K - 4K projectors without any doubt.
