LEAK: D60 BLACK GOLD Product #25459 ?!?!?

I work at a retail camera store and noticed a new stock number pop up last night. It was for "Nikon D60 Black Gold Body Only." It listed the Nikon part # as 25459. It was not 'shielded' or 'hidden' as stock numbers sometimes are before announcements. The price was listed at $649.99, $50 more than the standard D60 body.

WHAT IN THE HECK COULD THIS BE ? I can think of no historical basis for the naming. Is it a color option or trim package? Is it a new naming scheme for an 's' or 'x' type upgrade? What gets people to spend an extra $50? LIVE VIEW? That's the only thing the D60 is missing going into X-mas against the XS.

It seems clear that Canon held back an announcement for Photokina itself. Is it so surprising that Nikon is playing the same game (hopefully with lenses too!)? The D40x was slightly upgraded early on, could the D60 be unexpectedly replaced with a small upgrade (live view plus video)?

What do you guys think?
