Virtual Server future as a separate product?

I'm sitting in the Andy Lee's keynote at TechEd Amsterdam. He's just described some of the great features of virtulisation (and he's just announced that each delegate is to get a copy of Virtual Server enterprise edition). He also announced, I think, that Virtual Server is on it's way out as a separate product. What will be coming is a hypervisior, a thin layer of virtulisation, similar to VMWare ESX, but built into Windows Server. This sounds really cool, and I'm looking forward to seeing more details about this.
