If they are (or if they aren't, but the existing "work around" for the bridge chip of the R500 cards also works with the bridge chip of the R600 (or R700) cards), future extra work to support AGP variants of R600 (or R700) cards shouldn't be required.
That is a safe assumption.
I am hoping Mark can get the transfer speeds up above what the R500 has managed.
Still, its not a worse solution than OS4 users plugging PCIe video cards in PCI adapters.
