Questions about Hobbit blu-rays at Amazon.com Can't Post

Some questions, not sure if they are 100% answerable at this point.

1) For the 5 disc 3D blu-ray multi-pack, will the special features appear on:

a) 3D blu-ray only (in 2D since I presume they were not filmed in 3D)
b) 2D blu-ray only
c) DVD only
d) 3D blu-ray and DVD
e) 2D blu-ray and DVD
f) 3D blu-ray, 2D blu-ray, and DVD

It seems like #f would be redundant, unless the special features were filmed in 3D. It also seems since (I presume) 3D requires more disk space than 2D, there will be more room on the 2D blu-rays for the special features. Also, the DVD-only option seems unlikely, since the vlogs were HD. So my guess is either #b (2D blu-ray only) or #e (2D blu-ray and DVD).

2) Will the Amazon.com (not uk) blu-rays and dvds be region-free? I'm in NZ, so want to make sure I can actually play both the blu-rays and DVDs.

3) If we don't receive the discs before the DoS sneak-peak, will we be able to view it online afterwards? Or will we need to wait until someone posts it (illegally perhaps) to YouTube?

4) There was an Amazon (US) page for the 3D multi-pack a couple days ago; I think it was linked from blu-ray.com or a similar site. That page appears to be gone now. Does this mean it's not available for preorder from Amazon (US) yet?

And finally:

5) Anyone know when the 3D blu-rays will be available for pre-order from stores within NZ?
