The drawing suggests the aero extensions are attached at the stem and not the bars.

Hopefully a set of clip ons are not ‘cycling’s most important change in 30 years’.

I’m hoping for something more!

This has been confirmed by a Trek Dealer and Trek Rep as a real thing. Not a new bike, but a new set of compatible TT Bars for the Madone Aerobar that are due for release in the Spring (April) 2019.
Yeah, and this gonna be a new bar, so you'll need to re-route all the cables, bleed brakes and etc.
I quite like idea on SystemSix: Vision bars were made with idea of extensions and have sockets, unlike tradition clip-ons. I'm not doint TT, but I'd take that route if ever decide to give it a try.
Not true.
