I wasn't there, so I do assume that this was said, however, I always take it with the understanding that its quite possible he was not officially the author at this time, or that things change since this event occurred. I seem to recall something like this being said.
Please remember that this is a rumor. Nothing is official until we actually get the leaks in hand, or even the finished product for that much.

just saw that ur asking who will write the Eldar codex and i can tell you that.
Two years ago on Games Day Germany Phil Kelly told me hes so exited about the "new" Dark Eldar that he has written alot about Eldar in his little textbook.
I didnt think its a mysterie that Phil Kelly is working on the Eldar book.
