It might be - but figure that the UCI deadline for registering the team, getting the money in the bank etc etc is the end of this month. If they want a Pro Tour license they better get sh1t in order... Fast.

You're right... This lack of news about their team is raising some questions.
But they've been telling since spring that everything is developing according to plan. Last information from them was that they've applied for ProTour license and signed half of the team already.
It is little strange that they didn't mention names of the team and sponsors yet, but maybe they're waiting for the decision about license... It might be the factor in their project (maybe some sponsors and riders are conditioning their presence with ProTour status).
They're certainly keeping fans and cycling world hyped up. Euphoria will rise even more if they get the license and don't publish anything but team's name (because it will be published by ProTour) and leave everything for team presentation.
It reminds me on atmosphere before TDF presentation. Lots of rumors, speculations and "reliable information", and at the end, everything is more or less as expected... And you've been waiting to hear that (which you've already assumed).

It'd be interesting if this team didn't eventuate, i'm not really a fan of either of the Schlecks.
However he admitted that his form was not as good as when he dominated the time trial in Mendrisio in 2009. 'If I take the world championships in Mendrisio in 2009 as a comparison, when the situation was similar, I'm confident. The legs are on the right path. Now it must only make the click in my head," he said on his personal website.
