Will WEST and Waves chains merge together at the end?

Hi,

I think this question is very important for every community member and there is lot of unknow about it.
So can you please finally clarify how it is planned?

In one of the posts about future Waves roadmap it was mentioned that in Waves 3.0, WEST and Waves will be merged together under single token and that private chains will be side chains for one main underlying public chain. Or smth like that.

But in recent Q&A with Sasha, somebody asked when will Waves and WEST tokens merge and Sasha answered that it doesn’t make sense to merge them.

So? It’s very confusing and this is the most important thing, bcs without merging, Waves token will not benefit from all those huge WEST partnerships.

Can you please finally clarify this topic?
Thanks
