You want me to pay how much to host my external Sharepoint site?!

OK, someone at Microsoft please clarify this:

One of the new Sharepoint 2007 features is that you can host an externally available website to the masses, which will grab data from the shared datastore as your internal sharepoint, and not have to pay CAL's for each individual user (since, y'know, its the internet, and that could be huge).

But instead, you end up paying an insane amount of money to do this, to the tune of approx 50k.

If this is just how it is, how unfortunate that one of the kewlest features of Sharepoint 2007 is only going to be available to huge companies that can afford the price tag, and the justification.
