First of all, Ross is a good composer. He usually chooses to sit in the background and work as an orchestrator rather than a composer, but his works, most notably My Fellow Americans, are very appropriate for their films and work wonders. You'd be amazed at how much freedom Columbus gives Williams and I'm sure the next director will be the same way. Why would you assume Patrick Doyle will be involved? The only reason Ross was brought in was because Williams' schedule, with Episode II and two Spielberg films, was too compact to finish the score on his own. The Prisoner of Azkaban doesn't come out until summer 2004 and Williams should be available to do it solo. He won't need Doyle's help.
