I wonder if this is more a positioning for Windows 8 than anything else.

I doubt that would be the ONLY reason....

Perhaps not, but I'd bet money that Microsoft is looking at this as a vehicle to promote Windows 8 and potentially fill a niche --education-- that Apple has traditionally filled.

Hrm. Updates suggest that you may be right, but if that was their major logic, I'm not sure it's going to do what they hope...
