Yes, it's for real now. In an unexpected turn of event, Apple has finally listens to the growing feedbacks -which mostly are negative ones- on its iPhone NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement). Apple has announced at its iPhone Developer Program site:

But nevertheless, this is a nice progress both for the software devs & for iPhone users as well.
