Yes, one of the hallmarks of the yugas is the declining level of
knowledge.  But our conception of the Vedic mantras is similiar to laws of
nature.  Just because a particular phenomenon is not observed or
understood doesn't mean it has stopped existing.  So the other shakhas are
merely in hiding as it were until the wheel of time should turn again.
