Hmm... I live in Sydney, Australia and bought the AI2 limited edition
double gold CD as an import. 

My 2nd CD has the usual tracks (as far as I know) then:
darrel fitton - blipsalt ---> Does this track appear on your copy?
polygon window - my teapot
kenny larkin - maritime
scanners (hidden track)

It's all quite confusing really, but he's probably right if he was only
talking about the standard AI2 release, which he might have been. He
probably was, since if Warp gave the rights to the ltd edition release, 
to WaxTrax, it wouldn't be so limited anymore (if you get my drift).

Still its annoying and a dubious marketing ploy on Warps part... well I
think so.

Regards,

John
