Isn't it possible that the are introducing an adapter to use Leica R lenses on the M9?

No, it isn't. Although the flange back distance of the M system ( ca. 28mm) would in principle allow mounting lenses of the R system (flange back ca. 45mm) usind an adapter, the problem would be that you could not focus the lenses as they do not hava a rangefinder coupling and an M Leica does certainly not offer a TTL VF. Thus you could only focus using the distace scale on the lens, which no one would consider to be an option for Leica.
