Correct me if i'm wrong, i was under the 
impression that socket 940 is called OPTERON 
and socket 939 is called A64.

Why sell A64's as 'opterons' 939 if they have just 1 HT link and don't require
registered memory?

Why claim it's an opteron when it's an A64 client machine in fact?

It's a paper claim.
