New Amazon EC2 Features - Reserved Instances

So you can now reserve EC2 instances - which brings the cost down to about 6.7cents/hour averaged over a year.

It's a great idea. I wonder if the next step will be to allow more customized instance types at a price premium, provided a reservation is made for 1-3 years. I could certainly use a machine with faster IO for MySQL boxes.
