It'll never happen. This is a network oriented processor, and nobody uses HT there.
The accelerator cards use PCI-X right now and will move to PCIe in the future.
Try and remember these guys are sold in lots of 10K units :)

Yes, the RLDRAM is used by the Regular Expression engines/DFAs. RLDRAM is a specialty memory type used in networking. I could try and explain it, but this white paper (written by RLDRAM advocates) explains it better:
