Well Placed Rumors: SciFi Channel to become "Syfy"

On the SMOFS list, and then confirmed by a Google search which turned up a New York Times article, seems to indicate that NBC Universal will be changing the name of the SciFi Channel (I think officially just "SciFi") to "Syfy."

The question is: is this a sign that they are further abandoning the Science Fiction fan for the money laden demographic? After all, when they cancel will liked, well written and well done shows like Stargate: Atlantis, but continue to fill their programming with ECW wrestling and cheap, badly done, horror movies, are they going to continue to appeal to the same kind of SF fans that have packed panels at Worldcon and other venus?
