Clan support coming to Xbox Live in time for Halo 3?

I was looking through Halo 3 details on my Xbox 360 Dashboard and noticed something interesting. Under Halo 3 > Expand Your LIVE Experience > Online Game Play, it explains a few of the features.
One of them stood out - Clans:
Clans are one option for playing ranked matches. A clan is a player-created group for playing ranked matches as a team. With clans, you know the players backing you up are dedicated, and the players youíre going to face will be just as dedicated.
Since it has already been confirmed that clan support is not built in to Halo 3, this must be a feature that is instead built in to Xbox Live - and there have already been rumors that clan support would be added in the next dashboard update. Since this information is reached through a Halo 3 section, it must work with Halo 3 - and because Halo 3 comes out September 25th, unless this is merely a mistake by Microsoft we should be getting the fall dashboard update within the next eleven days. If not, we should at least get a small update that only adds Clan support - but thatís highly unlikely considering how Microsoft does Xbox 360 Dashboard updates.
