it will be backward compatible unless the technology becomes ret***ed. so you can still use the same psn acc. look at psp, you can dl on your ps3 to upload. this is a sign of flexibility of PS network. Genius!

It was recently confirmed that with the release of the PS4 later this year, that trophies and the like will carry over to the PS4. This means that your PSN account will be the same, but it is certainly notable to the original question that by default, any games purchased on PSN for PS3, are *NOT* going to function for the PS4 as the system will not be backwards compatible ilke the original PS3 was.
However, they have talked about streaming services through Gaikai being usable in yet to be determined functionality to stream PS1/PS2/PS3 titles. Details of specifically how this will work, and if re-purchasing of any content would be required have not yet been revealed. It is very likely that additional details will be provided at E3 which is taking place June 11-13.
In short, the main advantages for a current PSN account being able to be carried over to the PS4 is in relation to the confirmation that trophy scores will carry over, and while I've not yet seen details of any PS+ service for the PS4, it is extremely likely that a single PS+ subscription would be sufficient for both systems.
