New Superchargers coming ?????

Given that the Superchargers use 10 40 amp chargers from the Model S and we know that the Model X has a 72 amp charger in it. I think that the chances are high that we will start seeing new superchargers with 10 72 amp chargers in them. This would allow two things. 1) faster charging and 2) the ability to charge 2 cars at a higher rate with less load sharing. Perhaps the reasoning for the liquid cooled cords ?

Thoughts and possibilities ????

Or, maybe they will just install six of these putative 72A chargers instead of ten of the forty-ampers. Would this slight increase in amperage allow for a slightly faster charge as well?
