'11 Odyssey: 6AT limited to Touring trim?

We have heard from sources (on the dealer side) that the upcoming 2011 Honda Odyssey will indeed offer an all-new 6-speed automatic transmission, but it would only be offered in the Touring and Touring Elite trim levels. This would explain why Honda says all models will have the same VCM V6, yet only certain models will achieve the claimed 19/28mpg fuel economy ratings. Also note that in the current Odyssey generation, the VCM V6 (which improves EPA fuel economy ratings by 1mpg city, and 2mpg highway) is only available in EX-L and Touring models, so this isn't necessarily surprising news.
