With the age of the Shooting PD should DoPs be training as Directors?

I'm a Specialist Factual and Drama Recon DoP with an Arri Amira. Steadily, I've seen a colossal shift to companies employing Self Shooters over the traditional use of the dedicated DoP and to the detriment of visual quality once or twice. Thankfully, it hasn't affected my work in Drama, Recon and SFX. Is there really an advantage to be had, other than financial, in one person doing three jobs? Maybe DoPs should be training as directors?
