X3 xDrive 35i M-Sport No Top Speed Limiter for US market?

I was looking at the US build sheet for 4/2011 SOP and the ZMP M Sport Package does NOT get option 840 Increased top speed limiter.

However, the ZAP Sport Activity Package if the 19 inch rim mixed performance tires 2B7 is ordered, then 840 is added.

This doesn't make any sense, as the E83 M Sport packages had 840 added.

I know the car is limited at 130 mph and the 840 Increased top speed limiter increases the speed to 150 mph, but its the point behind BMW marketing "M..The Most Powerful Letter In The World"

This has been confirmed by a SA to me.

Also, ZMP is not offered with mixed performance tires (as the E83 M Sport was offered), so this makes the decision to order 20'' M Double Spoke Style 310 Rims much easier.

Finally, is ZDH-Dynamic Handling Package (223, 2VG, 2VL) included in the ZMP-M Sport Package? I have attached page 62 of the BMWNA catalog.
