DC motor upgrades?

Any rumors that some of the current lens line will get upgraded with the DC motors?
I've been shooting a lot lately with my 55-300HD, and while I like it for size, and range, I had the 18-135 back on the camera for a shoot,
It is a much nicer, snappier, lens in focus speed and accuracy, and the quiet is nice too.

No idea how much it would take to change/add the motors in the old lens designs, but it would be nice upgrade, and in the 55-300 they'd have a winner of a lens at the size, quality and price point. Assuming you could keep all of those features in an upgraded, quieter, faster lens, it would make a real nice package with the 18-135 if both were DC motored.
Just a thought....
