OSX 10.7 Lion coming on a USB drive for MB Airs?

Or is Apple going to force us to buy a USB optical drive like before? I really do hope they release the new OS on a thumb drive at nearly the same price point as the regular DVDs. Who knows, with the Mac App Store and flash storage just becoming cheaper and cheaper, optical media might be going the way of the cassette. I sure hope so.

Or, are we going to be able to buy a digital .dmg copy of the OS from the Mac App Store?

I'd say its most likely that it will come in the form of a usb drive, since the MBA got significantly more popular after the update.
a computer with some GHz and a few GB, some stuff to play music.
