Apparently the newest SDK update for the PS3 includes some limited support for a hardware scaler. I guess there really is one, then.
I remember coming across a forum post about a month ago by an alleged "sony insider" (Darknight) on avsforum.com that mentioned the existence of a hardware scaler. Looks like he was right.
It looks like all is not lost for those with the old CRT's. Hopefully the scaler will be able to be fully utilized soon.
From what the insider "Darknight" is saying, it looks like there's some inconsistencies with the article - apparently the devs have had access to the scaler all along. Why the secrecy?
EDIT #2: This is very interesting as well - WHY is sony restricting devs from using the scaler???
