Icom IC-7300 - CB Band Optional?

Browsing through the RadCom magazine and I noticed this on the Waters And Stanton advert:

Yes! -  According to Waters And Stanton they offer the option of 60m or 11m on the new Icom IC-7300. Are they really promoting the use of Amateur Radio equipment on 11 meters????

Of course we all know that many radios can be modified to cover additional frequencies and many operators do indeed use Amateur Radio sets on 11m but if this is not a misprint/error this would be the first time I have seen an advert openly offering to modify a radio for use on non-amateur frequencies......
