In fact no official sources ever said it wouldn't do full 3D, but idiots assumed it wouldn't just because it had an HDMI 1.3 port. Only to find out that lots of HDMI 1.3 devices support Full HD 3D.

Holy cow. Why not read the press release you just linked? Carefully! Here's the relevant paragraph:
"From a technological perspective, it is simply the best available platform for bringing 3D into the home," said Benn Carr, chairman, BDA 3D Task Force. "The disc capacity and bit rates Blu-ray Disc provides enable us to deliver 3D in Full HD 1080p high definition resolution." The Blu-ray 3D specification is also designed to allow PS3 game consoles to play back Blu-ray 3D content in 3D. Additionally, the specification supports playback of 2D discs in forthcoming 3D players and can enable 2D playback of Blu-ray 3D discs on the large installed base of Blu-ray Disc players currently in homes around the world."
The relevant facts you can infer from that release:
1. The Blu-ray 3D specification allows for Full HD 3D (1080p each eye) -- stated earlier in release
2. The Blu-ray 3D specification also allows PS3s to play back BD 3D content in 3D
To repeat, so it's clear that this thread is well motivated, the copywriter who knocked out that release did not explicitly say that the Blu-ray 3D specification allows the PS3 to play 3D BDs at the maximum quality afforded by that spec. I mean, just read the damn paragraph.
That's why the issue of the BD 3D playback spec on PS3 stood in need of confirmation. How can this be so hard for a careful reader to follow?
