the 2 month term for these notices (apps filed before 11/1) will be extendable. (FR 46728, for example).

Correct. The post has been revised to point out that the notices in applications filed before 11/1/07 are extendable (up to additional 4 months). Thanks for your comment.

Presumably they will have to stop doing this now the rule implementation has been injuncted?

a non e mouse:

It is my understanding that the Patent Office stopped flagging applications shortly after we (and other blogs) reported that it had begun this practice, in part because the Office realized that by flagging applications it was effectively implementing the new rules before the November 1st compliance date.

Thank you for your comment.

They have to stop now.
