An Unexpected Journey Extended Edition given rating

We've known for a while that there would be an Extended Edition of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - Warner Bros.' press release back in March, at the time of the release of the Theatrical Edition DVD and Blu-ray, said that the Extended Edition would be 'available just in time for the holidays'. Now we've learned that this extended cut has been given a rating by The Motion Picture Association of America. Their bulletin (seen here) gives the movie the same rating as it had in theatrical release, PG-13. But here's the interesting part - in theatres, the PG-13 rating was for 'intense fantasy action violence and frightening images.' Here's what the rating says for the extended version:

'Rated PG-13 for extended sequences of intense fantasy action violence, frightening images and fleeting nudity.'

'...and fleeting nudity.' Now that is something to ponder. A glimpse of the dwarves wrecking Bilbo's bathroom? A scene where Bilbo leaves his house in such haste, he forgets more than his pocket handkerchief?! Being serious for a moment, what could this be? My best guess is some dwarvish high jinks; what do you think?

Thanks to ringer spies kirkempk and An anonymous Ringer for bringing this to our attention!
