Here is/was the confusion: at the time of the pre-release review, the method of replacing TouchWiz was unclear:

What is still unclear from the posted video is whether or not this method sticks after a reboot, and if it will still be around after the first update. Also still unclear is if we'll need root to remove TW or make the configuration change survive a reboot.
Still, very good news and thanks for sharing. Monkeying with launchers is my second-favorite thing to do behind monkeying with task killers.
