Hack 60D to output in full HD when recording?

Just a quick one for those in the know.

Is the reason that the 60D will not output in full HD when it is recording (via HDMI to a monitor) a limitation of the hardware or the software? And if it is software can it be hacked?

It would make sense that it was hardware because of the single DIGIC processor being occupied with capturing and not being able to output simultaneously at HD aswell.

Conversely, since the 60D uses the same sensor and the same processor as the 7D, and being cynical, it seems pretty likely that Canon restricted this feature in software to ensure that this 'professional' feature was only available on the D7.

Anyone know which it is, and if it is software can it be hacked?
