I had never heard of DX11.1 before. I'll have to do some reading up on it.
If it's the case that DX12 won't be included and it is indeed comming in 2013, then I suspect Xbox 3/720/whatever it will be called will have support for DX12 as well as it being released for Windows.
I'm curious to see what it will have.
