Will there be a Van Halen reunion tour?

It's looking like our prediction of a Van Halen reunion on stage at the 2007 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is close to becoming a reality. Last week, just before Van Halen was nominated for the Rock Hall, there was this rumor from MelodicRock.com:
I have information from a highly placed source that Van Halen will likely tour in 2007 with David Lee Roth as frontman.

Negotiations are currently underway to re-unite Van Halen with their original frontman for a tour in 2007 that will take in Amercia and possibly other territories. While nothing in the world of Van Halen is set until the band walk out on stage, I can confirm that negotiations between all parties have been underway for some time, trying to put together a big 2007 re-union tour.

One would presume the tour will feature classic VH era songs only. What I do not yet know is whether this plan includes exiled bass player Michael Anthony.
Next year would be an ideal time for Van Halen to reunite for a tour to take advantage of the publicity surrounding their likely induction into the Rock Hall. As Aerosmith and Mötley Crüe have shown with their tour this year, there is a lot of money to be made by appealing to 80's hard rock fans.
