I agree... either way, Pain is goin' to die though. It would be awesome that as Pain is about to die just from lack of energy he would entrust Naruto to avenge him / to find "his" peace...Konan would be a problem though... Either would she convert as well (and it would be nice to see her as an allied) or it would be stupid to contradict the Will of her beloved Pain.
I guess this whole convertion of Pain thing could be as a "training" to when we cames face to face with Sasuke and have to convert him as well. Either he gets sucessfull with Pain and learns something, or he would "lose" in it's attempt to convert him and try to come up with a way to not make the same mistake with Sasuke.
As for Madara, he represents the old system, he clearly can not be converted, his death will mean the end of wars.
EDIT/P.S: About Madara or Hawk appearing I really really really doubt it... Konoha is in no condition (or even Naruto himself), for another prolonged fight! Danzou is "coming out" though lol
