Is the Celestron I know slowly returning?

I've noticed that lovely name "JAPAN" being stamped or described in an increased volume of Celestron products as well as "U.S.A." on many corrector plate housing seals. Orion seems to follow suit on its bigger scopes.

A fast-passing fancy OR greater things to come?

Just a few thoughts:
