They already have Camber Humps, which is rocker-camber-rocker-camber-rocker...

Seriously though, I hope their testing is showing some actual benefit. I'd hate for it to be like adding yet another blade to their razor just so they can sell "new and improved".
I could not agree more! I hope that the additional rock or camber section adds an additional level of control or pop or something.

So they bring in the camber slightly placing it directly under the bindings and allowing a full additional contact point at tip and tail, if I'm correct?

No, the opposite. It's the NS design with a slightly rocketed nose and tail. Should make it a little less catchy, but I wonder what impact it would have on edge hold? NS avoids the catchiness of camber by making the rocker section more prominent. It rides like a fully rocketed board until you lay into it engaging the cambered sections

NS has more rocker in the middle and camber past the bindings. It allows for more power in your turn and pop but still the playfulness of rocker. Camber humps is close but camber is still underfoot.
