Hi Giles,
You are correct, It is also listed in the 3Ti manual.  I have only had my 3Ti
for 6 months and I did not notice the addition.

 They may not recommend it but in the handbook for the 4Ti they at 
 least have a chart of the mag ratios you would get with the 90mm f2 + 
 65-116 auto tube... 0.72x - 1.72x.
 For that matter the chart does not 'recommend' the use of the auto 
 tube with the 50mm f2/3.5 either.  Using any of these lenses with the 
 Atube is classed as the 'composite' method wheras using the Atube and 
 the macro lenses that require extension is called the 'professional'
