To echo what's above, that's completely wrong.
Also, the D2G has a locked bootloader, and already has a very early "alpha" version of CM9 running on it.
I also believe (don't know 100%) but I think Th3ory's alpha ICS build was somewhat gleamed off of the CM9 base codes.....Again not 100% sure, but thought I saw that mentioned on his twitter account.
I will bet you'll get someone porting CM9 soon. Remember, CM9 hasn't even been "officially" ported to any device as of yet, and should be ready for full consumption in February, based on what they've stated on the website. So while there are some dev's who are already releasing their "alpha's" you're going to see a lot more people jump in once an official port is made available, because then they can Fork some of the trees, and development becomes that much easier.
