Um... they already are. Next year's ATI and Nvidia models start shipping with HDMI.

I do not speak officially in any sense for
Intel Corp., Technology Manufacturing Group
but I do work there.

Why is that sad? You don't have to use it. It's just going to be present on hardware if you want it. The cards will likely still cost the same. Give or take a couple bucks.

Sure sounds ugly. Maybe March is not in the cards?
