Well. I've read another definition from sun:

The MVC2 architecture is actually a modified MVC implementation. The
major modification
is that the Model no longer fires events to its Views.

However its just another buzzword they tried to invent... (Especially
since they totally screwed the MVC1 definition).

Patterns are guidelines. There are thousands of ways to implement same
pattern for a special case. We really don't need to invent a new name
each time. Otherwise we'll have MVC150 by tomorrow.
