primer pocket question

It took 40 years of reloading for this question to pop into my mind; I've never read nor heard any discussion on it. So I pose it here:

We clean the primer pockets with tools that vary from hand to electric devices.

The base of the pocket, where the hole is, is exposed to extremely high temperatures and eventually the pocket enlarges, rendering the case useless.

Doesn't the base of the pocket ever get thin enough to disintegrate? Doesn't the hole ever get larger? Or, is it such that the pocket enlarges before these things can happen?
