SHA3 implementation considerations

With this entire transition from DSA to RSA default signing keys, and
the gradual migration to the use of SHA2 hashes, will this same type
of difficulties be repeated when SHA3 is adopted?  Is it anticipated
that DSA2 or RSA keys will be "compatible" with SHA3 keys?  Maybe this
question is much too premature, however it would seem the actual
implementation of SHA3 is not too far off in the distant future with
the winner of the NIST competition to be named around 2012.
