The point being made is that the snap in dock may not be available for 6-9 months.

In the meantime, those who want snap in functionality can use Apples new Dock Adapter cable to connect the old snap-in adapter to the new iPhone 5. The iPhone 5 won't sit in the cradle, but the cable will allow it to charge and have full snap-in like integration with the car.
By looking at the size of the Lightning adapter and the current iPhone OEM snap-in adapter shape I doubt that you will be able to even plug the iPhone 5/adapter into the snap in at all.

The insertion angle may exceed the limit of the OEM 30-pin connector at the snap in, IMO.
