WWDC 2006: Unusually late, why?

Apple’s announced the dates for this year’s World-Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) and it’s coming in later than usual this year: August 7 through 11. Normally, WWDC will fall somewhere around late May to mid June (not always, but usually) but the date has become fluid over the years because Apple has used the opportunity provided to announce new products. This year, though, WWDC is really late in the summer, which leads me to the question “Why so late?” Anybody have any hard facts, unfounded speculation or rumors about why? Let me know in the comments.
