From page 2 of that same link:
"S&V: Will HDMI 2.0/a/b products be upgradeable to some or all aspects of 2.1 via a firmware upgrade?
CP: That is up to the individual manufacturers. They would have to plan for upgradability by designing and building it into their products. For some features it may be difficult and the best path will be to incorporate HDMI 2.1-enabled silicon.

I guess it will really depend from manufacturer to manufacturer. eARC seems like one of the easier features to add via firmware update but probably depends on the chipset used since it will require extra bandwidth (Unless the restrict it to content capable of using 1.4esque bandwidth).
