Spending more money on a better screen is far more important than spending money on a specification that doesn't really exist yet.
HDMI 2.0 is slated for UHD support. There is no content, no meaningful sources, and not much else with UHD that matters right now. So, spending the money on a UHD projector seems very wasteful at this time.
Realistically, in 5 years, you may be able to replace a $2,500 projector, with a $2,000 projector which is UHD native, has better black levels, and more features than what you would find in any $10,000 projector today.
Unless you are very serious about getting UHD right now, and willing to spend the money, then it won't be very beneficial for anyone for several more years.
Why spend money on the screen then?
Because your screen should be sized right for your theater and should last you 15+ years if it is a quality screen. That may be 2-3 projectors of usage, including whatever UHD model you end up with. A solid choice is getting a good screen.
