That being the case, I would think that they don't want people thinking an HD DVD release is "right around the corner". There was a statement on Amazon.com's listing of the new DVDs (and lotr.net) that said not to expect this on HD DVD until 2008 at the earliest, but I think you have to logically take that with a large grain of salt considering what I said above.
My guess is that it is possible to see it in 2007, but I'd suspect it would be a Fall or Holiday release. Spring seems much less likely. If not in 2007, then I expect it for certain in 2008, but that just seems WAY too long for them to wait.
Either way, I don't think there will be any reliable information on when this might come until after this Holiday season (when New Line knows that sales of their new DVD releases are well past their peak).
