It's like saying the GTX 480 should be faster than GTX 470 SLI... Or GTX 280 faster than GTX 260 SLI.

That's just not realistic mate
Well imho it all depends on the efficiency; a single GTX 480 uses more power than two 5850s do in crossfire and should thus outperform it.
Besides there's almost a one gen time difference between the two.

Really liking the IQ quality of the GTX 480 btw..
