When's Yamaha going to get their act together enough to offer their 60hp 4-stroke with electronic fuel injection?

Anybody with Yamaha connections?

Unlike Merc, Yamaha does not yet make EFI four strokes below the 115HP level. Nor does Honda. Suzuki and Mercury seem to have this market to themselves.

Since we know the identical 75-115 4-strokes of Merc/Yam are the same engines, is it true that the EFI system of the 115's is one of Mercury's contributions to the joint venture?
Or is it a Yamaha EFI system? Mercury's been building EFI outboards since 1985 or so, first in racing, then for the general market. So this was probably an easy transition for them on the 30-60Hp engines.
