In time to come, will there be a race called 'Malay'?

Article 160 defines a “Malay” as a person who professes the religion of Islam, habitually speaks the Malay language, conforms to Malay custom. 

Since more and more Malays are giving up their customs and culture by being 'Arabised', will they be qualified to be still called 'Malay' in time to come, or will '.... conform to Malay custom' be changed to '.... to conform to Arab custom' in the constitution? 

Will this become the new definition for being a 'Malay'? 

Hmmm .... food for thought though.
