Possible Delay in M-DCT?

Just found this article: http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/sto...012441,00.html

Even though its a Austrilian article, towards the end it points this out:

"Richter says the delay in the M DCT is intentional because BMW wants to introduce the V8 M3 as a manual, particularly in the US. America is the only country that demands a manual gearbox in the M5, which is sold with only SMG in Australia."

How is it a delay from what we have been expecting already? The article says M-DCT will be availble in April 08, which is 6 months after the cars release in October.

Hopefully you guys in the US will get the M-DCT option from the start.
