Thanks for the update Preac her
I'm glad to hear that Denon are addressing the issue and will make sure there won't be a problem.
You may find it is Profile 2 software in question considering the below statement:
The profile itself is the next step in the Blu-ray evolution. HD DVD is what I call a "baked format", meaning it's basically done. There are some copy protection things, but that's later, and they’re not going to affect performance and playback of material. For Blu-ray, on the other hand, Profile 1.1 is just the next step — there's actually a Version 2 some time next year. That's going to deal with players and the software, so it's two-sided. But back to Profile 1.1. It mandates that players must have secondary audio and video processing for picture-in-picture capabilities, be able to support external storage of some type — or internal storage, it's really an option, I believe — for downloaded Web material. Current Profile 1.0 Blu-ray players do not have to have any “connect” port.

Key words are "may not". Still speculation as he does not know for sure..
I agree with the sentiments that CM expressed some time ago surrounding this issue, ie. I can't see that the industry will disfranchise the current support base.. the same goes with BD+ I can't see them "cutting off their nose to spite their face."

The actual movie will ALWAYS play, just the pip stuff wont work.
thats what PaidGeek said and that has always been my understanding.. ie you will be able to playback the HD movie but wont be able to access the advanced online features.
I gather the issues with BD-J so far have been addressed with firmware updates.. so I can't see any difference with this.
