I just received an Email from WBM, and it looks like you are right, Maestro. They will follow up with wet/dry suits, and then with PFD's.
Although I'd rather see vests listed in the big issue, with the other essential equipment (boards, bindings, ropes/handles), I am none the less impressed with WBM's quick response, and reactions to their reader's concerns. I was even asked for my opinion of the plans for the subsequent supplementry guide issues, which to me, goes a long way (credibility). Thank you Matt!
