More Windows Phone 7.8 feature rumours, might be getting more that just the start screen

Ready for some more Windows Phone 7.8 rumours? We are happy to oblige... but only ask one thing of you. Please get yourself a salt shaker, make sure there's plenty of the white stuff inside, stick your tongue out, afford yourself a generous sprinkle and you are good to go. Remember the Nuno Silva debacle or self proclaimed evangelist Joao Luis' "tip-off from a 'confidential' inside source whom he trusts 200%"? Doesn't ring a bell? What about Nokia's U.S. president Chris Weber leading us on by saying both Microsoft and Nokia understood the importance for consumers to keep their devices fresh and updated, and therefore "were working to make sure people have fresh and updated experiences on any device they may have." That is exactly why we recommended the salt!
Now, salt on tongue, we're hearing that there will be more features to be announced for Windows Phone 7.8, courtesy of some semi-official twittering (Joe Marini anyone?). Ben Lower, Senior Product Manager for Windows Phone Developer Experience tweeted that "there will be more," when responding to a developer who had complained that they wanted more from Windows Phone 7.8 than the start screen.
On a similar note, responding to a question about Windows Phone 7.8 features at TechEd 2012 in Netherlands, Senior Product Manager and WP team member, Larry Lieberman, said:
Will Windows Phone 7.8 get new features as well that you can access as a developer? Maybe. We haven't announced it yet.
All we've announced is the new Start screen at this point. Sorry, nothing new to announce. You're asking me stuff I can't answer.
