RE: B787 Enters Home Stretch Towards Delivery Pt.2

Does anyone know what is the status of the ETOPS certification on the 787? I know the FAA type rating and cert has basicaly been sent to the printer, but how about the ETOPS? Will Boeing get the ETOPS330 as "out-of-the-box" for ANA (as they wanted)?
