Daleks in Series 6?

Will the Daleks appear in the next series? In the past it’s been a safe bet that Doctor Who’s most famous monster will make an appearance at some point during each series. But Steven Moffat has hinted that may no longer be the case.

While Moffat doesn’t rule it out entirely, it sounds like there isn’t anything planned at the moment. Although, of course, it’s equally possible Moffat is just playing his cards close to his chest.

The Daleks have appeared in every series since Doctor Who came back in 2005, except the Specials (save a cameo flashback). So how would you feel about their potential absence from the next series?
