Interbike: 20mm BMX?

A lot of bikes are going towards larger front axles, especially when stiffness is important. Many jumping and DH bikes already have these integrated. I can only imagine that adding a stiffer axle to an already short, stiff front end of a BMX bike must make the thing very responsive!
