It looks like this may be beginning:

Dashboards | Android Developers

There are more devices on ICS (21% of devices) than there are on Froyo (14%). I can't think of any new apps that are 2.3+ only, but have to think that will start being the case. If you design an app for the 80% case, that now means 2.3 or greater.
