I'm afraid I don't know the answer.  Have you tried some of the Apple Support Communities?  https://discussions.apple.com/index.jspa 



While there are a lot of consumer oriented questions in a lot of the forums, there are also some sophisticated users there who are knee deep into Apple products, and I would imagine there would be someone who knows over there.  Sorry I can't be of more help.  Good luck!

I agree, the apple support communities are probably your best bet. It's fairly easy to find differences between the two in terms of features, but not so easy to find the answer to your specific question.

You might also check out Apple's sites for contacts inside the company that you could email about this. Maybe their press contacts could point you in the right direction.
