A commenter going by John answered a lot of my other questions, and (I think) confirmed what I'd dreaded: the 5-star rating system and flagging are dead, replaced by a heart graphic. A full heart means "I like this song", a broken heart means "I don't like this song" (why would you keep a song you didn't like?). You can also leave this blank if you're so inclined. I'm not entirely sure, but I got the impression this means the death of flagging as well. OK, so I'm not so concerned about the 5-star system (I think I like the new idea better), but the lack of flagging is really disheartening, as it's one of my most used features. If this is true, I'm going to be leaving my current Zune at firmware1 for some time.
Otherwise, the new Zunes sound amazing, and I can't wait 'til the 13th.
