Business Wire had an article that preceded the one I mentioned yesterday; it appears the one I’d read may have excerpted from this one, without citing it as a source, as this one contains everything the other had … and more.

Though it leaves many of my questions unanswered, it does appear that this is more of a recent decision just announced, and will be several months before we see a final product. The site will apparently be redesigned by ATG (Art Technology Group, Inc.) and utilize the ATG Commerce platform to run the site.
