Is YouTube Adding Live Streaming Functionality?

After live-streaming presidential speeches, healthcare debates, and even Tiger Woods’s confession, YouTube may be close to opening up live-streaming for all.  These screenshots suggest so, anyway.

TechCrunch noticed this extra toolbar on a YouTube employee’s help page.

While adding live streaming would inevitably cause copyright infringement and bandwidth issues, it looks like it could be a possibility.  How long could they keep it behind the scenes with startups like Ustream.tv, Justin.tv, and Livestream popping up?
