A New Motu Proprio?

Rumors have been spreading, and have now been seemingly confirmed, that there will be a new motu proprio coming out from Pope Benedict reorganizing some of the competencies of the Roman Dicasteries (namely, the Rota and the CDW), transferring competence for "non consummatum" marriage dissolutions from the CDW to the Rota. What is of greatest interest here is the second aim of the motu proprio: the creation of a new section of the CDW to deal specifically with the implementation of "a new liturgical movement" that will be charged with implementing the reforms of Vatican II with greater fidelity. News of it (in Italian) can be found in an article printed HERE. According to the article, the document has already been reviewed by the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts and is subject for promulgation in the very near future.
