Low suspension F800GS - changes in the rear

Ohlins technicians in Hendersonville said on the phone today that there is no problem lowering the Ohlins forks in the front, except that there is insufficient latitude in the F800GS rear suspension for a shorter strut and spring, and still use the bike as intended.

Meanwhile, BMW comes out with a low suspension version of the F800GS for 2013. What gives? Was the 2013 frame changed to allow for more travel to lower the bike and not shorten the shock?
