I don't think that it's going to happen.
Perris Valley and San Diego?? All you would need to do would be to include Inland Empire in LA's MSA and that would be enough. That’s an extra 4 million people.

Which brings me to the point that it wouldn't be noticed if LA were bigger. Because excluding Inland Empire from LA MSA is somewhat arbitary anyway. The Census could easily include it and perception wouldn’t change.
