Following the official story: Bitmain stated they have only used ASICboost on testnet. Have they stated or has anyone asked yet when they are planning to use it on mainnet?

Why go to the trouble of implementing it in the ASIC chip design, producing it at higher cost and trying to secure a patent in China when you're just using it on testnet? Obviously the Bitcoin protocol allows Bitmain to just make use of it on Testnet but unless Bitmain registers as a charity there should be a timeline ;)?
