The Register is reporting that Microsoft has recently changed their roadmaps and pushed back the release of what is currently known as Windows XP SE to the first quater of next year.

XP SE will be principally a consolidation release. Candidates for inclusion are the essential .NET client-side plumbing: the common language runtime (CLR), Internet Explorer 7.0 and DirectX 9.0, and a mature Bluetooth stack. Microsoft has blown hot and cold on Bluetooth - mostly cold, actually - but with chipsets at the $5 mark, it's going to be ubiquitious in PDAs and phones by 2003.
Will it be worth the extra $$$ to upgrade, only time will tell.
