Bah, in the games development biz there are always a ton of things to be attended to. I believe the term "progressive refinement" comes to mind. Basically it suggests that things get done, then tweaked and improved, then tweaked and improved more...ad nauseum. So, I wouldn't be surprised that most, if not all, of the things we've seen are in some early to mid stage of development and while be tweaked/polished before the game even gets in our hot little hands.
