Yeah, you're right. I reread his journal entries and that is just one of many options. He never said they were doing it one way or the other.
"I want people to be able to sit down in front of the PC, and start playing within seconds, without worrying about which key to press, or how to get around that table. In other words, with a mouse. Which means that, technically, yes, you'll be pointing-and-clicking. But exactly how it's been done before? Not necessarily."
He goes on to mention how the controls will have to rebuilt from the ground up to suit consoles, though gameplay will be the same. There's quite a bit about possible controls and whatnot in his journal at ragnartornquist.com. It's the fourth post from the bottom on the journal page (not news).
