I hope that's not the case. :(

As for the picture: I like the way the Wi-Fi antenna ports moved to the top of the I/O shield. I winder why they haven't been there all along.

They have, on some boards, but different board makers place them differently.
Same location on my current board.

That's not how it currently works. Now you have model names like "Prime B560M-K" where B560 is the chipset, M stands for micro-ATX and K suggests how equipped the model is.
For the "Prime" boards yes, but for current ROG strix boards -I is itx and -G is mATX.

100 boards to choose from and every last one will sell out within minutes. Barring of course the bottom end offerings no one wants, those might last a few hours (before they all show up on ebay of course).

Seems the manufacturers are going all in on AL being a biiiig hit. What do they know, that we don't i wonder?

This holiday season is going to be messed up, Intel drew the short straw when they chose to tie their launches to it.
Vendors have been stockpiling since summer in some cases to prepare, but I doubt stockpiling these motherboards, CPUs for them and even DDR5 was an option.

I want to swap my Behringer audio interface for a UA Apollo Twin and that one is on TB3. There is an affordable AM4 board (Asus B550 Creator) with TB4 but judging by the forums the experience people had with it was garbage so I'd be willing to rebuild around some midrange 12xxx Intel CPU just to have thunderbolt working without extra hassle. I'm not willing to pay 400$ for a motherboard though.
Wait until they release the B660 boards lineup after the first of the year.
