The Astana Breakup Thread

I had an Astana breakup question to ask, but one that's not necessarily related to Team Radio Shack, and realized that, in fact, there is no terribly appropriate place to ask such a question right now. So I'm making one.  So there.  You are all very very welcome to join me is speculating about what's coming next, and next after that, in the soap opera that shall be called...

...The Decline and Fall of The Astana Cycling Team! (ooooo, literary allusion...several of them acutally!)

Oh, my question:  Presumably Johann Bruyneel will remain employed as the DS of Astana for the rest of the season, and their current roster will remain more or less intact until then too.  The exception being Vino is coming back tout de suite.  Thus my question:  is there any reason why JB can't more or less tell the sponsors to go suck eggs and not take Vino to the Vuelta, thus assuring that he has an invite to the Vuelta?  He's surely cheeky enough, no?  

Aside from that, think of this as an open thread.
