This will not happen.  Outside of an anticipation rejection under 35 USC 102 then properly made 35 USC 103 rejections are extremely valid.  If the prior art teaches or suggests the combination then no patent should be granted to the claims.

I think the intent of the question was to explore what happens if a showing of TSM becomes unnecessary for a valid 103 rejection.   I don't believe any of us expect that previously valid rejections are going to become unacceptable.
