I don't understand it either. Having the Matrix and LoTR out will be a huge boost for promoting HD-DVD systems. It would make owning HD DVD compelling for a lot more people, particularly LoTR with all its sweeping vistas. Even if they released so-so versions now they could always put out the super-duper, reedited, remastered, retuned, retouched, director's recut rerelease with rediscovered lost scenes and commentary by the extras and grips further down the road.
