This is likely to be the case, I'm sure that the rt2x00 developers
will probably have support in the driver once RaLink gives them the
code / info needed.

Not really, old cards generally work, current cards that have been out
for a little while generally work, and bleeding edge,
just-released-yesterday cards tend not to.
In general, the kernel developers only add support for a card once
it's been released.
