SCJP for Java 6

It appears Sun has quietly released a Sun Certified Java Programmer (SCJP) Exam for Java 6. The exam objectives look strikingly similar to the Java 5 test. Someone at JavaRanch points out the only differences in the 5 and 6 exam are the Console, NavigableMap, and NavigableSet classes. My theory is Sun is simply trying to get tests relabeled to remove the Java "2" insaneness. Not to mention this is likely not a trivial revenue source for them as it is their most popular test. I'll likely not take this exam unless I get excess free time. I don't feel the benefit is there over my current SCJP 5 cert. I'll likely be holding out for the Java 7 exam.
