Well you won't see the complaining lasting forever. When the news initially came out about Ohio there was an uproar from many Honda fans. Doesn't really matter if you take my word for it or not.

We don't really know at this point. The Lexus 2.0T could very well be a Lexus-only engine in North America or worldwide. Toyota models may get their different turbo engines. Or, Toyota models might...
