They're only adding A B C and D. E and F are mapped to * and #. (:

(And that's only half a joke. The tone encoding scheme as mapped has an
additional tone band to lay four more buttons to the right of the traditional 3
x 4 pad, and that's been waiting for years. So the decoders are ready, we just
need to build phones to do it. But I think this is getting pretty far off
topic....)
