Check 1: No new RTQs

Given the recent history of RTQ updates coming later and later each year, I didn't necessarily expect to see them updated just yet. But since the RTQ selection process was unencumbered by the recently-dissolved ARP, I nourished a hope that the lack of oversight might result in a streamlined process.

For purposes of speculation, recall the RTQ update post dates over the past four years:
January 9, 2006
February 1, 2007
February 8, 2008
February 25, 2009

Should the trend continue, there's really no hope of seeing updated RTQs until March. I'll maintain my optimism for a winter release. By 2011, even that might constitute starry-eyedness.
