Will it ever happen?

I'm curious, as I've seen official development team statements that OpenCL image support will eventually be available for Radeon 5xxx cards. However, I have heard no official word on whether this will be exclusive to 5xxx and newer models, or whether 4xxx will be supported as well.

This is not such a pressing matter anymore as by now I have coped with the fact that I will have to work on my image data in 'raw' fashion but I was wondering whether there is any chance at all that my 4870 will one day have CL_DEVICE_IMAGE_SUPPORT, or whether there are hardware limitations that prevent this from ever happening.
