I would guess life expectancy of a well built cable to be around 100 years, give or take. Rough handling could decrease this time drastically.
I don't believe there has been any tremendous improvement in cable design in the last 5 years. The only 'improvement' that I find much more prevelant in today's top cables is cryogenic processing.
The designs are fairly similar. You could send your 5 year old state of the art cables out to be cryo'd, and I'm sure they'd be right at home with today's best cables.
