Google Webmaster Team Sending Letters To Sitemaps Users?

I am not sure about this, but it seems that Google's webmaster trends team is sending out snail mail letters to some Sitemap users in the Google Webmaster Help forums. I believe the letters read:

<url>
<loc>
http://www.google.com/webmasters
</loc>
<created>
2006-08-04
</created>
<priority>
Help webmasters create great sites.
</priority>
</url>

I think this is a gesture of appreciation to some of the more active members in the Google Groups support forum. Again, I am not 100% sure about this, because I do not have a picture to prove it and the language used in the Google Groups thread is a bit cryptic, but I think I am right about this.

Forum discussion at Google Groups.

Update: I have been informed that these are not letters, but rather T-Shirts that have the XML above written on the back of the shirt. I hope to acquire a picture of this T-Shirt. And here is a picture provided by John:
