All the other DP or MP series are vastly different.

I'd say your slides are outdated. Intel probably decided to move all variants to the larger socket. Otherwise it would be very strange to use the big socket for the Desktop SNB-E.
Yea for some reason I remember hearing that 1356 was scrapped altogether in favor of 2011. Which if it is the case, is a very wise decision imo, as I suspect that 2011 will offer considerable performance gains over 1366, whereas 1356 won't be as much of a performance improvement over 1366.
