My old 4-speed 4R75W from 2007 was treated as "replace with factory rebuilt" as well by the service-policy company. I'd honestly rather have a warranted rebuilt from a shop specializing in transmissions than roll the dice on a local wrenchape who may or may not be good at transmission rebuilds and may or may not have a clean place to put transmissions together.

Adobe Acrobat Reader shows that file as having been created 21 March, so it's probably just that it came out a month before the public announcement of the 10-speed and Gen2 3.5L Ecoboost for the F150. Some guy in fleet marketing didn't have the "need to know" about the future announcement.
