You sign up Jenny?

It seems there have been a number of different development variations of the WR and YZ based bikes at JVO in the past couple of years, including I understand, a variant that fits the new 2012-on model WR450 - that is with the traditional engine layout that incorporates EFi, but in the new smaller YZ derived frame... so perhaps all this development will ultimately lead to one definitive Yamaha team bike?

I tend to agree with your assumption, since there is no doubt that the current reverse cylinder YZ engine has the potential to make significantly more power than the older architecture engine (and is therefore likely to be the basis of any elite-team effort), I'm just not sure Cyril will like having to revert to kick-start only after all those years on E-start only bikes?!
