I don't know that Joseph was claiming to be NDA bound, just that there  
might be people who could potentially comment who are.

But, in any case, more than once I've been in a situation where I was  
unable to discuss or otherwise acknowledge information that was public  
because of either classification guidelines or NDAs.  There's a big  
difference between carefully controlled press releases and someone  
responding to random questions. And, likewise there's a big difference  
between someone making intelligent speculation about a technology and  
having certain knowledge.
