Still will be great to see this done right on Blu-ray. Thanks for the good news.
If I am remembering it right (someone please correct me if I'm not), what the BFI did was take the raw, unmatted 2k scan done for the 2002 Warner DVD, clean it up and adjust the color balance, and then restore the original UK credits. It looked really good, but it was still a restoration off of an old scan, so I can understand why they might want to go back to the original elements with newer telecine technology.
