AILA has posed many questions to the USCIS regarding the Visa Bulletin scandal and is still awaiting answers.  Among the questions is whether the USCIS will accept concurrently filed I-140 / I-485s after August 1, 2007.  Another question relates to what the appropriate filing fee for an I-140 petition will be for EB applications that were current in July but filed after July 30 (per the resolution to the July Visa Bulletin mess and after CIS filing fees increase).  Yet another unanswered issue is how to file an I-485 application concurrently with an I-140 petition that has already been filed but for which a Receipt Notice has not yet been generated.  Great questions but no answers as of yet.
