Entran 3 still good?

Curious as to how urgent the situation is with entran 3 and its deterioration.
Is it all going brittle or isolated cases?
Does it lack o2 barrier?
If a house is mid remodel would it be smart to just tear out the tubes and be gypcrete now or can entran 3 that is protected by gypcrete going to last another 30 years?

    TwinTran and Entran2 were the problem tube
    Entran 3 was the first with an oxygen barrier
    It then became Onix
    Oxygen nix was allegedly the concept in the name Onix

    Do you think it's possibly good for another few decades?
