What's going to happen when IMDb reaches 10 million titles?

Currently, IMDb has over 9,125,000 titles, in the form of "tt#######" in the URL's, which means the highest title, respecting this format, will be tt9999999 (or 9,999,999).  Titles with a number under 1 million have leading 0's (like tt0072562 is SNL for example), so I'm wondering, will titles 10,000,000 and over just have an extra digit, or will it bump all titles to have an extra digit in their number (so SNL goes from tt0072562 to tt00072562)?

Let the Y2K conspiracy theories commence!

The same thing as when the ID number of registered persons recently reached 10.000.000: the existing IDs remain the same, and it goes from tt9999999 to tt10000000.
