With uncles at around 500 a day, is a gas limit increase now discarded?

Before the last hard fork took place, uncle count had been drastically reduced and many of us thought the gas limit could be increased. After the fork block times seem to have fallen to around 13.5 secs / block and uncles have again doubled.
