That's what I'd thought as well, but bigger companies like Argos seem to be doing it now (lots of things need ordered in). I guess it saves them shipping and storing stuff around the country until it's actually needed.
As for the paint name changes; I'm sure if you go into a store and ask for the old paint name they'll be able to give you a more or less compatible paint with the new name, though the name change only really makes sense if they are changing the entire paint system.
Holy crap that's a lot of paint. On the upside, since GW are pretty much the only paints I can reliably get hold of locally at least I get a wider choice now. And maybe they will dump their crappy bottles and go for droppers. I'm off now to stock up on Devlan Mud. You know. Just in case...
