Well, BMW said there was not enough demand, except in the US, tu justify the sedan for the E46 M3. So, the attitude that comes across is that, while not an afterthought, the sedan is definitely secondary to the coupe.

Oh, and what percentage of the coupes being sold in the US will have a moonroof? My bet is that it's going to be more than anyone here thinks and is willing to accept.
Which reinforces my notion that the sedan won't have CF. The coupe is considered the performance choice; if a high percentage of those buyers choose the steel/sunroof option, it's bound to be much higher for the sedan where practicality is more important.
