Can you upgrade the new Retina MBP SSD with aftermarket units, or are you limited to what comes form the factory?

Nope! From the pictures it looks like the flash modules are soldered on the logic board!
The picture I saw clearly showed the RAM to be soldered, but I didn't see a clear shot of soldered flash. I would guess it's on a small board like the Macbook Air uses.

So the MacBook Air ones are on a removable board almost like a memory module? Do people sell after market upgrades, i.e. if you have a 64Gig MacBook Air, can you go 128? I wonder if the same will hold true for the new MacBook Pro.

That would suck if your SSD went out and you had to replace the entire logic board, versus buying a new SSD on NewEgg for $200 bucks.
