Rumor: upcoming MacBooks Pro may already have Light Peak connectors

According to a rumor published by CNET News, Apple is due to announce ?soon? a new high-speed connection technology. So, as if you want nothing, they also put a reminder that new MacBooks Pro are crossing the corner, as if they were the first to have Light Peak doors, but with another name.

Light Peak Connector

Just a question: what would be the point of having a Light Peak port on a MacBook Pro, if there is no peripheral compatible with it? If this rumor is confirmed (and I think it is very unlikely), I believe that it would not be an exaggeration to wait for the new iPads, iPhones, iPods touch and even the other iPods to use it to leverage the adoption of technology and emphasize its advantages at the time of make a synchronization of several gigabytes.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the design of the connector above indicates that it will be backward compatible with USB 2.0, right? I hope it is, because, if not, that the chances of her being adopted now will decrease even if they are big, to begin with.
