Re Video out: the picture has the iPhone having 2 leads come off the bottom - one to accessory 4, one to the dock accessory. So that's basically a nod towards potentially being an iDevice with DP, so a inclusive of Thunderbolt/Light Peak.

Seems it's pretty broad as it's an accessory that draws power, attached or in communication with the iDevice. Basically allowing to dynamically power up or down accessories. (Keyboard, video adapter, camera, radio tuner, in vehicle entertainment system, speaker dock, card reader etc). talking about lingoes that the PCD (iDevice) can talk using.
