Is Disney considering going HD DVD?

Unlike other members of the Blu-ray Association, who always withdraw from HD DVD votes, Walt Disney Home Entertainment, a major Hollywood studio and one of the strongest backers of Blu-ray disc format, voted for approval of a preliminary specification of 51GB triple-layer HD DVD media. At the Steering Committee meeting in September Disney voted for triple layer twin-format HD DVD as well as triple layer HD DVD 51GB revision 1.9 preliminary media standards, according to the notes from the event available at the DVD Forum. The fact that in both cases Walt Disney voted for the new HD DVD standards, might not be proof they've changed sides, but I can assure you it raised some eyebrows.
