Default From now on its a routine

Rest of world will be current.

EB3I moves by a week or two or no movement.

EB2I Jumps few years in August and September of every year and then will sleeps for 10 months.

Until a new law approves. No need to look for Bulletins.

There is an interesting pattern on EB2 ROW approvals this year which may explain why there was no advancement in EB2 I/C dates. This is from That Site EB2 ROW approvals primary only.
Oct 2012 to May 2013 - 754
Oct 2011 to May 2012 - 588
This represents 28% extra consumption.
Now we do know that last year due to high volume approvals for EB2 I/C in feb / mar 2012 these were far more than the numbers could support so ROW cases approval did move to the next year.
So we should filter out Oct and Nov 2012 and then compare over the corresponding periods.
Dec 2012 to May 2013 - 527
Dec 2011 to May 2013 - 489
If we compare these time durations then the numbers are comparable.
EB2 Mexico and Philippines normally do not consume much in EB2, EB2 I/C would take their share. Easily we can see that ROW would take 8- 10K extra visa this year when compared to last year.
With this most likely Eb2 Row would not give any SOFAD, however the numbers do indicate that it would not take any SOFAD away either that would come from EB5 / EB1 including 12K out of 18K extra FB spillover. So even if EB1 does not give anything there is still 12K to apply. But seems like extreme caution is being exercised to use that. Overall EB2 would be SOFAD neutral this year. .

Porting is the only thing that EB3I guys have in their own control. The other thing that they have in their control is lobbying. ofcourse both at some $ expense.

I haven't had a chance to look at the DD yet but do you think any SOFAD from the 18k FB has been applied? With no movement in the PDs, I don't think so...but that's my guess without looking at the numbers.
