Xbox 360 Backward Compatibility Development Ramping Down After '07

At the end of the GDC blogger's breakfast yesterday morning, Chris Satchell dropped this bomb that not many people seem to have picked up on. He said, regarding Xbox 360 Backward Compatibility:
At some point we're going to focus less on it. When you get to the end of this year there will be a reduced focus on backwards compatibility. There are so many 360 games out there. I don't know if it's important anymore.
No offense to Microsoft, but you guys started "ramping down" Xbox compatibility the day you announced it. Microsoft's support of older Xbox games on the Xbox 360 is nothing short of deplorable, especially when you consider how they talked it up.
