the only a compelling reason that I want a 2012 Air vs 2011 is USB3. But now that we're seeing TB->Ethernet, TB->HDMI, TB->FireWire then would it be possible to see TB->USB3?

I know Apple would prefer we buy the newest machines but I'm still curious if the omission is more because of marketing choices or if it's technologically impossible.

Thanks for any input. :D
