Chicago Michelin Stars 'Leaked' By Mistake?!

A member of the social networking, user review and local search web site Yelp is claiming to have the scoop on the Michelin stars that will be awarded to Chicago's top restaurants on Wednesday when the guide is released:
According to the post, only Alinea and L2O were awarded the coveted three stars. Avenues, Charlie Trotter's and Ria received two stars.
Here's what the "Yelper" is saying is the entire list:
Crofton on Wells
Longman & Eagle
See the post right here.
It may be entirely possible that the information leaked if guides were mailed out early by mistake.
Also, WHERE are avec and Cafe des Architectes? They were not on the Bib Gourmand list.
UPDATE: Michelin just announced that it is moving the official announcement up 24 hours, which is Tuesday morning. Just got a confirmation from one of the chefs!
