Microsoft exploring centered title bar text in Windows 8?

During CES 2011, Long Zheng took some interesting photos of Sinofsky’s Windows 8-on-ARM “demo”. Two of which show that Microsoft is toying with a UI change involving centering of the title bar text. Perhaps we’re seeing early work on readability tweaks for Aero Basic tier users (i.e. low-powered tablets, mobile devices)?
