The J-16 seems to have been given priority in construction so they already seem to be working on replacing it.
Even if it wasn't for the airframe losses, the J-16 is a lot better specs-wise.

77% more dry engine thrust, higher flight ceiling, higher top speed, higher range, more hardpoints, etc. Way more capable aircraft.

Comparing the J-16 to the JH-7A is akin to comparing the F-15SG to the Tornado GR1; there is no comparison.

This looks familiar to me. Some on the Chinese internet speculate this to be a wind tunnel model of a next-gen unmanned fighter. Not entirely certain how credible this speculation is, so I've put it here instead of another existing category.
