Except for the little point where as a PA you are always subservient to a physician, in one way or another. You don't make your own decisions. Many here would not be able to do that. I know I wouldn't.
I don't think it will be that many years away before PA are allowed to practice independently, at least in some states. We seem to be moving towards a 'mid level' type of healthcare system as a way to lower cost... unfortunately.
And I agree some, especially for those with a huge ego, that may be an issue, but i think many people wont see that as a problem. It's a stress free environment if you have a good employer and with the # of jobs out there, it shouldn't be that hard to find. When you are covered by a physician, you don't really have to worry about malpractice, cause they'll sue the MD.
