Watch the Apple presentation.

At time 38:26 (and in particular 38:48) it clearly states that charging AND audio will be provided...and the example given is for cars and your other older audio docking devices (when used with the $29 30 pin adapter).

Thank you for clarifying. That's good news indeed.
