NEF files- Win 64 bit

I'm considering a D7k, and just read this on Thom Hogan's site, where he relates a Nikon customer service reply:

"Compatibility and support for our NEF Codec running on Windows 64 bit system is under review by the Nikon Quality department in Japan. At this time we do not have any time table on when we will or if we will issue drivers and software support for this new system."

Thom correctly keys in on the use of "IF". But my thing is, I don't fully understand what it means. I won't be able to open an NEF file in Lightroom if my computer is Windows 7, 64 bit? That doesn't make sense. So what exactly is the incompatibility?? What is affected?

Appreciate anyone who can clarify it...
