Default VSP 7000 switches and support for standards

I screened through the VSP 7000 Facts Sheet (http://www.avaya.com/usa/resource/as...eet/lb5289.pdf) and found many standards and features tagged with asterisk. Obvously this means : "roadmap feature". If this is true (and the document is up to date) then there would be no DCB (802.1Qxx), no VENA, no SPB (although TRILL is in), no Virtualized and Fabric Infra. In short all what makes sense in the Next Gen DCN is ... missing. Or what am I missing here?
Thank you for clarifying any mis-interpretation from my side.

Hello, not really overwhelmed by answers on this rather basic question. Could someone at least confirm whether or not SPB ships in the VSP7000 today?

The current GA-release does not support SPBM.
