Speculation: is BBC three going to be replaced by BBC One +1?

Just quickly, here is my thinking.
As well as the speculation about moving BBC three online, there has been talk of providing a BBC One+1 service.
Clearly it's going to be on from 7pm each evening, on button 7/115/106.
As the channel can now be carried on Freeview multiplex PSB1: the Freeview version of the channel will carry the regional news programmes from 7:30pm-8pm and 11:25pm-11:35pm.
However, there isn't the satellite capacity to provide all these regions: so BBC One +1 on satellite won't have the regional news, it will get a caption.
I might also speculate that BBC FOUR HD will move to the PSB3 multiplex so it can be watched everywhere in the UK.
If so, BBC ONE HD +1 will go on COM7 and not have regional news.
