Well, if this happened behind closed doors then people would demand to  
make it known ;)

But seriously, the new design needs to be anticipated by the developer  
community, development from now on should take into account the future  
hardware directions. So I for one hope that developers will be  
informed of anticipated hardware changes as early as possible. And  
hopefully even early enough to give feedback.
