Replacement glass for Thunderbolt display?

I scratched my thunderbolt display while moving back after finals

I know the glass is easily removed since its held on by magnets, does anyone know where to get the panel and if the Cinema Display 27 inch part is the same?

The monitor is only 6 months old, anyone ever scratches theirs and get a sympathy repair from Apple?

I wonder if a glass shop the cuts and polishes glass for windows can polish out the scratch. I would guess the glass would have to be removed if there is wet polishing involved.

The imac glass is different because the bottom corners are not rounded.
