Beta, people. Or, MS wants to commit corporate suicide.
They have already gone on record as saying no to that scenario, at least according to Steven Sinofsky. They are already committed to this path. As in 'escalation of commitment'.

For anyone that doesn't know what that means, research 'Challenger accident'

Yes, the CP is beta. But the Metro start screen and Metro apps situation is here to stay. There may be some small usability changes to be made between now and RTM, but this is essentially what we will be using. I've read enough from the offical designers blogs and have been involved in enough past Windows betas to know that they are essentially sticking to this path. They have little choice now...
