Yeeah, I think you got your facts turned around the wrong way here.
If you're going to post something that you deem as the truth, get your facts straight.
LGA 1156 existed a (relatively) long time before LGA 1155 was introduced to the market. I'm not sure whether or not they could've actually just dropped SB in to the LGA 1156 socket but I'm just going to trust Intel on this one since I'm not even remotely enough educated on the subject to make a statement. And as it appears, so are you.
