Kreacher feature: As the comments under my Regulus post show, the inclusion of Kreacher in the OotP movie was not just because the producers had too much money and needed to get rid of some. (In fact, they pleaded budget constraints in explaining why they decided not to include the Frank and Alice scene at St. Mungo's.) It was because Kreacher will be important in Book 7.

Will we, therefore, hear more about the wizards' treatment of non-human magical creatures? About SPEW?
