Pretty unprofessional to say the least....
Actually, I am 110% sure that the lower shader count was not intentional on ATI's part and the AIBs didn't even know about it. If they didn't know that means their box art won't be changed.
Further to this story, the launch of this card is a bit of an interesting one. I have spoken to three of the largest AiBs out there (not including Sapphire) and NONE of them has plans to carry the HD 4830 at this time. This means nothing good for availability.
