You don’t see this getting talked about in public much. And, well, it’s possible we weren’t supposed to see it in public at all. But more likely it came out of a forum or something. This (specifically, the curtailing of the scope and selection of Forgotten Realms sourcebooks) is what it costs to keep D&D in print, so if you care about the business, pay attention. You see, WotC has these things called “targets” – and they hit them.
