It would be wrong to say that Too Many people are getting the Rinnegan. After The SO6P, Only one other person has had the Rinnegan...That is Madara.
What about Nagato, you say? Remember Tobi-Madara said He Gave Nagato the Rinnegan. I believe he was telling the truth. Tobi Gave Nagato MADARA'S original eyes, in order to use Nagato. Madara planned this before he died. How about Edo Madara? Well that is still Madara's Rinnegan.
What's actually going on is that Madara's Eyes are being shared and Edo Tensei'd. In truth The Rinnegan is still Rare and has only had Two Legitimate owners, that is of course if you give Madara a pass for stealing Hashirama's DNA in order to force the development of his Rinnegan in the first place.
Let me also say that Madara's Rinnegan is not on a par with the SO6P's. Why, well that is because the physical energy that energizes it (Hashirama's energy), is probably inferior to The SO6P's physical energy or even the Younger brother's. In addition, the Spiritual Energy that initiated it, Madara's, is probably inferior to SO6P's, Older Brother's, and maybe even inferior to Sasuke's spiritual energy. In effect, Madara was able to awaken the Rinnegan by using contrived methods. He succeeded, but Madara is probably a weaker Rikudou than the original.
Naruto's physical energies, boosted by the kyuubi yang, are probably the only person's life force as strong as the younger brother's, due in no small part to his uzumaki bloodline (not to mention sage mode).

(I mean come on, even the kyuubi said his chakra ws more malicious than it's own, moreso than Uchiha Madara's.)
If either of them gained the other's power, it would be the rebirth of the second 'true' rinnegan.
I had that idea after I saw naruto's chakra shroud after he dominated the nine tails and separated it from his own chakra. Its foreshadowing in my opinion. He is the only other character in the series that has been directly linked to the Sage by appearance. Not madara/Tobi, no one else looks like him and then BAM. Naruto appears to have the body of the Sage in chakra form which will lead to Sasuke, in a similar fashion appearing another version of Sage IF Kishimoto wants to bring this full circle and make a callback to the fight between the older and younger son of the Sage.
Of course this is all speculative and trying to predict what will happen based on what we have seen in the series. But I always seen it as, if Sasuke gains the Rinnegan, I always though he would use the Uchiha technique to take back control of the Nine Tails and take it out of play in a fight against naruto. So in order to be on par with him, Naruto would have to gain the Rinnegan in some way shape or form. How that happens I have no idea, its just a thought at this point.
I don't think Sasuke can do anything with the kyuubi anymore. Madara himself tried to summon and control it, but got nowhere with it in Naruto.

Itachi stops edo tensei in his fight with kabuto, but this causes him to disappear too so kabuto survives.
Naruto + konoha chunin v sasuke as the incomplete juubi jinchurikki, naruto wins
kabuto takes sasuke's body, and transfers orochimaru (the tail/snake) into it, kabuto dies. Orosasuke awakens the rinnegan
naruto is hokage
naruto defeats orosasuke
just i thing i want to ad on this
has any considered if kabuto dies the edo's don't disappear ??
it has bin mentioned a couple of times in the manga first by the 3th hokage fighting Oroshimaru
he said even if i kill Oroshimaru the problem of the 1st and hokage wont go away if i don't seal them first
so my reasoning is Kabuto will be killed but Madara wont be gone he will be free from the edo tensain control and will merge whit Tobi and become the "ultimate mega uchiha madara of the six paths"
There is still Itachi's Totsuka sword and extremely strong sealing jutsu.

you cant say that nagato's rinnegan eyes are the same as madara because we simply dont know what happened to them after his death, for all we know madara could have used the "danzo implosion" technique and destroyed them from the start. i also find it rather logical that ppl with a doujutsu that are used for edo tensei has their doujutsu when edo'd, it is after all a bloodline limit and their dna were used for it, no matter if their eyes are stolen after they die. afaik you are wrong that edos are summened with items they had upon death, if i remember correctly the 7 swordsmen of the mist had to summon their swords in order to use them.
1) Nagato's Rinnegan's first appearance was at his home when his parents were killed, obviously they went back to looking normal until they showed up again after which Jiraiya taught the trio Ninjutsu. :http://www.mangafox.com/manga/naruto/v48/c444/17.html
2) Tobi Gave Nagato the Rinnegan, was it lies and Manipulation? Here is the Page where he said so. He was about to kill Konan, there were no witnesses. Who was he manipulatin? Was it Konan? why would he manipulate her just before she dies, why would he lie to her when there is no one to benifit from the lying? http://www.mangafox.com/manga/naruto/v54/c509/4.html
3) For Nagato to have Coincidentally acquired a genetic Mutation in the form of a Rinnegan is highly Implausible given that Edo Madara was expecting Nagato to Resurect him.
I think Tobi's story is very plausibly the truth.
yeah, you are right, i had forgotten about that. this is also a clear indication that tobi did not actually give the rinnegan to nagato as operated eye tend to be permanent and doesnt change to their previous forms atleast thats how it is for the buykugan and sharingan.
except konan wasnt about to die at the time, she was about to make her attack against tobi which is the perfect time to say the thing he did as it makes konan hesitent and grants tobi more time to counter konan's attack.
there can be many reasons for that tho. the fact that madara knew about a lot of things that he shouldnt, would indicate that tobi put the idea of of the akatsuki in nagato's head for this reason, so he would have some control of him and could use him to resurrect madara at some point. also what is it that makes nagato gaining the rinnegan naturally so implausible? there are still way to many things we dont know, so anything is plausible no matter how extreme it might be, nagato gaining the rinnegan naturally is just as plausible as tobi giving the rinnegan to nagato even if the timeline would make that rather implausible in my opinion.
