Sony prepping 80GB Elite PS3?

Gizmodo reports Sony is working on a new "Elite" PlayStation 3 console with a 80GB HDD. The proof for this is a document the company send to the FCC.
A new PLAYSTATION 3 model (CECHE01) with an 80GB hard disk was listed as an additional inclusion to the original FCC grant. The two current model numbers CECHA01 and CECHB01 specify the 60GB and 20GB versions, respectively.

Is this be the basis for a marginally improved but wildly expensive and enticing PS3. If so, is it meant to compete with the Xbox 360 Elite? And, if so, why upgrade a machine that's already too expensive for most?
