K-r out of production (or, some varieties of it)?

Can't believe I haven't seen this here. B&H is listing the K-r body only as "discontinued". Other kits are still in stock.

Rumors include the possibility that
  • stock is being cleared for a new model (dubious, given the Christmas sales season, but that's not important in Japan)
  • Thailand flooding is causing supply problems
  • just some models are being changed out
  • oh no Pentax is totally going to go under for realz you guys run around and scream

Anyone have any more details on any of these theories, or new ones?
