When does File Replication using NTFRS or DFS-R will be availabe? Does anybody already work on this item?

Here would be some first documentation for this team in case it hasn't started yet:
- NTFRS: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc759297(v=ws.10).aspx
- SYSVOL replication: http://technet.microsoft.com/de-de/library/dd640019(v=ws.10).aspx
- NTFRS migration to DFS-R: http://technet.microsoft.com/de-de/library/dd641227(v=ws.10).aspx

DFS-R replication of SYSVOL folder requires all domain controllers using Win2008 instead of Win2003 (which only supports NTFRS). I expect this is at least one of the main reasons for MS to make a difference between the domain compatibility 2003 and domain compatibility 2008 setting?!
